Call for Automotive Digital Twin Initiatives


Recommended Posts

The Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) is organizing a series of events as part of their Road to COP26 programme. The overall aim is to communicate how the UK are delivering the 2050 net-zero automotive roadmap together, showing the automotive industry in the UK as a key collaborator working with other nations and sectors towards climate goals as well as their key technologies and expertise enabling great innovation for this transition. 

As part of this events programme, The Institute of Digital Engineering - IDE UK (www.ideuk.org) is co-hosting an event on Digital Twins in September. We would very much like to hear from any digital twin initiatives taking place in the automotive industry - particularly as part of the engineering process - to take part in this event as part of the panel discussions. It would be beneficial to demonstrate to the automotive industry the value of digital twins, and what the industry is and should be doing on this front, along with the achieved benefits and the potential consequences of inaction.

Despite the number of Digital Twin programmes and initiatives taking place nationally, there seems to be a gap when it comes to case studies from the automotive industry. If you know of, or are involved in, any digital twin initiatives in the automotive sector we would love to hear from you! 
Please reach out to sunniva.skorve@ideuk.org


IDE UK sits within Loughborough University as a spoke of APC and is a government funded institute with the vision to establish the UK as the global leader in digital engineering, driving innovation, investment, and engineering excellence within the automotive sector.

Hi @Sunniva,

It would be great to know when (& where) this event is, and whether it is open to all? I would be very interested in attending.

Hi @Alexandra Robasto and @Gavin McLauchlan, we will start advertising the event early next week, but it is indeed an open event, held virtually on zoom, and is up on eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/road-to-cop26-digitalisation-tickets-168562441801

Alexandra, we would really appreciate it if we could advertise it on the Digital Twin Hub, and absolutely be part of your calendar, thank you so much! Can I send you the event details directly? 

Many thanks,
