A broad consortium of 35 Swedish and international stakeholders with the base at Chalmers cooperate in Digital Twin Cities. Cutting-edge research is conducted in eight different research areas, covering all aspects needed to develop large-scale digital twins. The goal is to utilise the technology for new approaches in urban planning & design, architecture and digital construction. To facilitate uptake and implementation for Sweden to spearhead the necessary digitalization of the built environment sector, a particular focus will be on knowledge transfer to industry and public actors.
The centre is led by the Chalmers Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering and Area of Advance, Information and Communication Technology. Digital Twin Cities is located at “A Working Lab” at Johanneberg Science Park where researchers from several departments, along with industry partners, students and guest researchers, work together.
