Digital Twin Book & Publications

Stack of Books

The DUET Consortium is working with a number of experts on an official book to be published by Springer Computing on Local Digital Twins.

The book provides an introduction to local digital twins for data-supported decision making, outlining the technology and standards involved in creating twin instances, as well as exploring potential benefits.

The open access book is due for publication in early 2023.  To ensure you receive digital access please sign up to DUETs newsletter via the form in the website footer.
