Digital Twin Consortium (DTC) has join forces with the Smart Cities Council (Council) to educate local governments and cities about digital twin capabilities.

Headquartered in Boston, DTC drives the awareness, adoption, interoperability, and development of digital twin technology.   

The Smart Cities Council is a global network that serves as an ‘objective and neutral network for sharing knowledge’ that works educate cities about sustainability and resiliency.

Globally, the plan is to leverage the Council’s presence in Australia, New Zealand, and India to further educate cities.

 In North America, the partnership highlights include:

  • A guest appearance by DTC’s CTO Dan Isaacs at Smart Cities Week in Denver, speaking at the Smart Cities Academy, and a session on Digital Twins for Cities.
  • Council’s managing director, Philip Bane will speak at DTC’s member meeting in late June in Orlando.
  • The Council will host and DTC will provide expert speakers at a Digital Twin Workshop co-sponsored by the City of Orlando in September 2022.

Across Australia and New Zealand, the Smart Cities Council hosts the region’s Digital Twin Hub, providing an opportunity for the recently announced DTC Regional Branch Organiser (‘RBO’) XMPro to collaborate on continuing to build a marketplace for digital twins across the region.

The Hub develops knowledge resources, including releasing the Australia New Zealand Digital Twin Strategy Blueprint in 2021.

It also hosts premier annual events including the Aotearoa New Zealand Digital Twin Summit and Digital Twin Week, being held in Melbourne, Australia in October 2022, and facilitates the biennial Digital Twin Challenge.
