Structural health monitoring and digital twin modelling are the timely research areas in structures that attract interests worldwide. The Newton Fund project teams from the London Digital Twin Research Centre and the University of Transport and Communications (Vietnam) continue to extend the impact beyond the project by organising the 2nd International Conference on Structural Health Monitoring and Engineering Structures (SHM&ES 2021) during 13th-14th December 2021.
The London Digital Twin Research Centre has been successful in two further bids to the British Council’s Going Global Partnerships programme. The two projects focus on DT research and knowledge transfer that is strongly located in our University strategy themes and have at their core, the UN sustainability goals.
The new projects are:
Project 1 (Vietnam, 2022-2024): “Urban Resilience in Agriculture Through Highly Automated Vertical Farming in Vietnam and the UK”
Challenges in agricultural product supply during COVID-19 pandemic brought the idea of adapting a highly automated vertical farm system to the urban context. This project is international research that is aimed at sustainability issues arising from food resilience needs. The project will install two greenhouses to support vertical farming and use DT/IoT smart solutions to control and monitor production. Alongside the technical work, there is a substantive piece of educational work on vertical farming with young people. The project is also an example of collaboration with the Business School. We are collaborating with Van Lang University from Vietnam.
Project 2 (Indonesia, 2022-2024): “Developing Connected Curriculum on Digital Twin for Health System Resilience” Continue reading “Other New Grants for LDTRC”
