DigiTwin Workshop: Business Benefits of IoT

Speed up your digital twin development! Join DigiTwin workshop to network, share experiences and brainstorm new ways to turn IoT and digital twins into business.
Digitwin workshop 2019

Digital twin is a vast concept that combines many technologies such as simulation, IoT, and artificial intelligence. These all aim to make people’s lives better, but the road has many turns. Technologies must be mature enough, suitable for practical use cases, and they need supporting business models to keep the wheels spinning. 

In this workshop, we first share knowledge on the practical benefits of IoT and digital twins in presentations of invited speakers and DigiTwin project partners. These give ideas for the afternoon workshop where we brainstorm for new business opportunities based on the participants’ current goals and resources.

The workshop is arranged by Aalto University, Konecranes and Remion as part as the DigiTwin project funded by Business Finland. The event is open for everyone and its goal is to boost digital twin networking in Finland.
