Prototyping an interdisciplinary Digital Twin Engine (DTE)


EGI Foundation
interTwin co-designs and implements the prototype of an interdisciplinary Digital Twin Engine (DTE), an open-source platform that provides generic and tailored software components for modelling and simulation to integrate application-specific  Digital  Twins(DTs). Its specifications and implementation are based on a co-designed conceptual model -the  DTE blueprint architecture-guided by the principles of open standards and interoperability. The ambition is to develop a common approach to the implementation of DTs that is applicable across the whole spectrum of scientific disciplines and beyond to facilitate development and collaboration.
