IoTwins is ready to kick off

4th Sep 2019
Based in the Emilia-Romagna Data Valley as part of the Horizon 2020 programme, IoTwins will experiment with new technologies for the digitisation of industrial processes and products. It will encompass 12 test platforms that will create ‘digital twins’, or virtual copies of industrial processes that will be used to test plants and infrastructure management tools in advance. In addition to local partners, the project also includes international leading companies and scientific institutions such as Siemens, the Supercomputing Centre in Barcelona and the Fraunhofer Institute in Munich. IoTwins will involve a repositioning of the industrial system in Europe and in the world, that for sure will also positively impact the climate crisis. From September 4 to 6, Bologna hosted the first IoTwins project meeting: partners are ready to start with project activities.
