TeckUK, an industry body promoting the social value of technology to citizens and businesses, has released a report - ‘Unlocking Value Across the UK’s Digital Twin Ecosystem’ - that is hoped to help reignite layers of their economy and bring urgent and sustained action and investment.
The report centres around five key recommendations, namely:
Develop a cross-cutting, interdisciplinary coordinating body to drive forward digital twin adoption and diffusion in the UK
Demonstrate value from (and explore barriers to) the adoption and diffusion of digital twins via a series of strategic demonstrators
Trigger the adoption of digital twins across the UK by exploring the development of an online digital twin procurement portal
Work with industry to identify talent pipeline requirements and anticipate levels of future demand for skills across the UK’s digital twin ecosystem
Fund a net zero 2050 digital twin demonstrator to establish the UK as a global leader in leveraging digital twins for decarbonisation.
