17:00 IN PERSON ONLY – Digital twins and EOSC – Advancing data-driven science through optimal data use, data management, computing and research infrastructures. Insights from BioDT.

Thursday 21st September 2023 - 5.00 pm - 6.00 pmRoom: PrismaUnconference sessions

BioDT is one of several projects aiming to establish a new type of platform based on digital twins to address important societal challenges, in the wider context of the EU Green Deal, Destination Earth and the EU Biodiversity Strategy specifically. It aims to provide a platform comprising digital twins to drive long-term biodiversity research and facilitate science-driven policy and rapid-response actions.
The proposed session will provide an opportunity to push the integration of these platforms with EOSC,
as BioDT in particular and various digital twins in general can strongly benefit from an integration in e-infrastructures.

In-person only
