International Digital Twins of the Ocean Summit

04/05/2022 - 05/05/2022

The Digital Twin Ocean Summit is an international meeting led by the DITTO programme, supported by the G7 FSOI, and is a contribution of the UK government to the G7 Ocean Decade Navigation Plan. The ambition of this meeting is to (i) advance community understanding of Digital Twins, their applications and benefits, (ii) bring together the users and developers to learn how digital twins may benefit society, (iii) share knowledge about Digital Twins and best practice, (iv) and support concrete actions and articulate future plans to achieve a Digital Twin Framework.

The summit will have at its core a 2-day in-person meeting hosted by the UK Government and will be accompanied by many virtual satellite events happening over several days coordinated by GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel, Germany. The plenary sessions of the Summit will be live-streamed and recorded.

This summit will bring together the multi-stakeholder community and potential users, providers and developers of digital ocean initiatives from a range of scientific and societal sectors to explore the various components required to achieve a fully operational Digital Twin
Framework of the Ocean by 2030.
