The DT Hub
'Learning by doing and progressing through sharing'
The Digital Twin (DT) Hub was created by the Centre for Digital Britain at the University of Cambridge as part of the UK government’s National Digital Twin programme. In 2022, the DT Hub transitioned to a multi-sector Industry and Catapult Network partnership housed at the Connected Places Catapult.
Digital twins and interoperable, connected digital twins, are significant tools for fighting the global systemic challenges currently facing the world – challenges like pandemics, climate change and resilience. They are key enablers for ensuring better outcomes for people and nature through aiding a collaborative and co-ordinated approach to problem-solving. The DT Hub was established to support this socio-technical mission.
The DT Hub is a network for finding partners and collaborators. It is a place for learning and sharing experiences; for driving innovation, developing expertise and advancing the state of the art for digital twins. It identifies good practice, develops guidance and shapes standards on data sharing as well as showcasing the benefits of collaborative, connected digital twin endeavours.
The next phase for the DT Hub is ambitious, as digital twin owners and builders look to support each other to develop increasingly advanced digital twins for diverse applications – joining up across sectors to follow the DT Hub motto: ‘learning by doing, progressing through sharing.’
The DT Hub will focus on four core priorities, to ensure:
- A vibrant industry-led community
- A purposeful, mission-driven voice for industry
- Engagement with a growing number of sectors
- Acceleration of open standards and interoperability
