Purpose and goal

This project aims at ensuring the pioneering management of water and sanitation for all with the use of open data and shared design in digital twins for society-critical infrastructure. The goal is that collaborating parties will get a clear picture of development needs and practical approaches to being active partners in innovation ecosystems where digitization, open data and shared design will pave the way for sustainable solutions to societal challenges.

Expected results and effects

This project will contribute to the development of smart, competitive and long-term sustainable water purification infrastructure. It will result in descriptions of opportunities and limitations for those who wish to use digitization, open data and shared design to develop society-critical infrastructure. It will also result in increased understanding of how the exchange of information in digital twins, between actors working together in innovation ecosystems, can contribute to new innovative products and services.

Planned approach and implementation

The project comprises seven activities: 1. Mapping needs, expectations and understanding of challenges and opportunities linked to the impact of digitization on strategy, organization and business models, as well as collaborations in innovation ecosystems. 2. Scenario and model definition of how data and design can be shared and integrated into infrastructure development. 3. Thematic workshops. 4. Research and innovation capacity development. 5. Demonstrators. 6. Analysis and recommendations. 7. Documentation and communication.
