Digital Twins – Use cases, opportunities, challenges

Discovering Digital Twins, highlighting opportunities and discussing challenges

▪ Welcoming our new testbed members, DIGIRAS, SINTEF ACE, AORO, Smart Bioeconomy Testbed
▪ Inspiring examples: Destination Earth & Fields of the World – Agrimetrics,
–  Thomas Geenen, Technology Partnership Lead for Destination Earth
– Richard Tiffin, Chief Scientific Officer at Agrimetrics
▪ Panel discussion: Digital Twins, Data, and Modelling, Intelligent organic farming testbed, Liisa
Pesonen (Luke), Maria Nordström (Skogforsk), Martin Holmberg (RISE)
▪ Workshop: What is needed to support testbed development? Based on the interviews with all
existing network members, we will discuss what messages we want to send to policymakers.
This will feed into a policy brief being sent to the Nordic Council of Ministers.

Digitalisation plays a vital role in the rapid development of the Nordic and Baltic
bioeconomy. Access to cutting edge platforms for development, so-called testbeds,
where new digital knowledge and technology can be developed is fundamental.
Managing a testbed is however a complex task.

To facilitate the development of new and existing testbeds, the Nordic Testbed
Network aims to unite and strengthen testbeds aimed at supporting the digital
transformation of the bioeconomy.

The Nordic Testbed Network is managed by Nordic Forest Research (SNS), Nordic Agri
Research (NKJ), and the Nordic Council of Ministers’ working group on fisheries and
aligned with initiatives such as the North Digital Declaration and the Nordic
Bioeconomy Program.
