FinEst Centre for Smart Cities is having the next Research & Innovation Seminar (RIS) on the 10.11.2021 with the topic “Digital twinning the green areas and participatory planning”.

Research and innovation seminar

Since June 2020, FinEst Centre for Smart Cities has been organizing Research and Innovation Seminars (RIS). The purpose of RIS is to create a connection between researchers and city developers. This happens by presenting research results, plans and urban challenges presented by city developers, urban planners etc.

The next RIS session with the topic Digital twinning the green areas and participatory planning is happening on the 10.11.2021 from 10:00am to 11:40am (EEST) and can be seen in online.

Register to the session here.

This time, we are looking more closely to the FinEst Large Pilot - Tallinn-Helsinki Dynamic Green Information Model (GreenTwins). GreenTwins project develops a library of green elements for the digital twins of Tallinn and Helsinki and creates a permanent city planning hub in Tallinn centre. The world-class novelty of the project is the dynamic digital modelling of the green environment: a green information model.
