A partnership between the Alan Turing Institute and Accenture is seeking bids from digital twin projects for research funding.

The Institute recently launched a five-year strategic partnership with Accenture to advance data science and AI research, with a focus on delivering substantial business and societal value.

The partnership has as total of £300,000 of funding available and seeks to award up to £150,000 per project.

In special circumstances, there may be an opportunity to increase the funding awarded for an outstanding project, the partnership said.

Commenting on the initiative, the institute said: “By working together with Accenture, we aim to explore how state of the art digital twin methodologies can be augmented with currently used techniques in the industry.

“We have a particular interest in applications of digital twins in supply chain analysis and the insurance industry, but are open to other applications.”

Expressions of interest should be submitted by noon on Friday 24 September to the Turing’s FlexiGrant portal.
