On 31st March 2022, Prof. Huan Nguyen represented the London Digital Twin Research Centre (LDTRC) at the roundtable discussion organised by National Oceanography Centre (NOC). The event focused on sharing ideas and lessons on how developers and users can collaborate on digital twins for environment, as part of the ongoing project on information management framework funded by National Environmental Research Council – UK Research & Innovation (NERC-UKRI) and the Met Office.
The event included talks from NOC, National Digital Twin Programme (Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy), Joint Centre for Excellence in Environment Intelligence (Met Office), and Alan Turing Institute. Around 20 representatives from different departmental and research organisations were in attendance, e.g., the British Geological Survey (BGS), the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA) and the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH). During the event, Prof. Nguyen shared the lessons learnt on federated digital twins and data sharing currently implemented in various projects of smart factory, structures at LDTRC. Useful information was also shared and exchanged from other guests with a summary to be sent to the UK government to contribute and feed into the digital twin work programme.
