Digital Twin Hub > Frequently Asked Questions

The Digital Twin (DT) Hub is an online community for anyone interested in the development of digital twins.

The DT Hub is the place where the digital twin community meets to share knowledge, agree common approaches and inform future standards related to digital twins.

Its ultimate purpose is to enable the vision of the National Digital Twin - a connected ecosystem of digital twins that will progress our society, economy, and environment through collective innovation.

The DT Hub is also the window to the National Digital Twin Programme, where we share what we are doing, seek feedback and maintain alignment with the community.

Our aim is for the DT Hub to be the most comprehensive online resource for all things digital twin – a reflection of the opportunities ahead for our online community to contribute to, engage with and refine the range of resources.

The DT Hub has been formed to accelerate progress towards the creation of the National Digital Twin by bringing people together who work in or alongside that ecosystem. It serves to connect those that otherwise may have never been connected and who share the same interests, sense of purpose and vision.

No, the DT Hub is for everyone with an interest in digital twins. Our community is inclusive – even if you are just starting to gain an understanding of digital twins, the DT Hub is a great place to learn and connect with people doing the same.

As a growing resource for all things digital twin, there is a lot more to the DT Hub than our online forums. We regularly publish a range of content including articles, case studies, blogs, and interviews with members of the community. Our events and workshops also help you to connect with likeminded members of the community.

We have built the DT Hub so that all members can share content using the green Add new or Start new buttons.  You don’t need permission to use these buttons.

We have provided information and further links to guidance on Security Mindedness. This forms part of our terms of use and should be considered when sharing any information with the community. 

All shared content goes through a moderation workflow. We strive to do this as quickly as possible, but during busy periods it may take a couple of days.

We have provided the Supplier Register as the primary place to promote products and services. You can add an entry to the supplier register by clicking the Add new supplier button at the top of the page.

You can contribute with case studies, articles and blogs to showcase your products and services using the case study register and the ‘Shared by the community’ area within the article and publication sections. Please note that these areas are not intended for sales-oriented material and must include the practical application of your products and services.
