Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction

Transforming infrastructure through smarter information
 

Dr Jennifer Schooling will be talking about the CSIC project Digital Cities for Change in an interview with Sam Chorlton, Chair of the DT Hub.

Part of a series of Hub Insight interviews, Dr Schooling will be joined by Gemma Schroeder, Smart Cambridge Programme Manager.  The interview, which will be hosted by the Centre for Digital Built Britain’s (CDBB) DT Hub on 16 February at 11.30am, will explore their work together on digital twins for Smart Cambridge led by Cambridgeshire County Council.  

The Smart Cambridge programme explores how new and emerging technologies and data can be used to address some of the challenges that the city faces such as congestion, poor air quality and constraints on infrastructure such as energy. The collaboration with CSIC on digital twins brings cutting edge research out of academia and begins to apply it in the real world. Dan Clarke, Digital Programme Manager, Cambridgeshire County Council

CSIC’s Digital Cities for Change (DC2) project, funded by the Ove Arup Foundation, explores current city and infrastructure management structures and systems. It seeks to demonstrate how built environment data and digital tools can be used to inform better and more cohesive decision-making. DC2 aims to deepen understanding of how built environment data can help improve city planning management and the delivery of public services.

"The Smart Cambridge programme explores how new and emerging technologies and data can be used to address some of the challenges that the city faces such as congestion, poor air quality and constraints on infrastructure such as energy. The collaboration with CSIC on digital twins brings cutting edge research out of academia and begins to apply it in the real world," said Dan Clarke, Digital Programme Manager, Cambridgeshire County Council.
