Introduction to the survey

Local Digital Twins (LDTs) are a virtual representation of the physical assets, processes and people within a geographically located community, which reflect and derive from cross-sectorial, historical and (near) real-time data. Their purpose is to enhance evidence-based decision-making, at the operational, strategic and tactical levels, to better meet the needs of communities. Local digital twins combine multiple technologies, such as data analytics and artificial intelligence, enabling predictive and simulation models that can be updated and changed as their physical equivalents change.

The LDT Toolbox project targets parts of the LDT ambition, preferring cases that accelerate the digital transition respecting the values of the EU Green Deal. The project focuses itself on the less-ready communities, to increase their speed towards adopting local digital twins and democratising technology across the EU.

The project’s main objectives are to map EU-based technology providers and users involved in LDT deployment, develop a complete LDT toolbox, validate LDT scenarios, design the toolbox based on the best deployment scenario, and create a plan for widespread adoption in the EU.

The survey’s objective is to gather insights and collect the needs and requirements that will guide the co-designing process of the Local Digital Twin Toolbox.

The deadline for the survey is 30 June at 23:59 CEST. For any questions please refer to

The project is implemented on behalf of the Directorate‑General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology (DG CNECT) of the European Commission by a consortium composed by four consultancy organisations (Deloitte, Capgemini, Intellera Consulting and Technopolis Group), two research centres (TNO, IMEC), one network organisation (OASC) and university (DTU).
