“Connected Urban Twins – Urban Data Platforms and Digital Twins for integrated urban development” (CUT) was launched in 2021. During the five-year period of the project, the three partner cities Hamburg, Leipzig and Munich are working together to further develop Digital Twins for cities and municipalities.

The project

What are Urban Digital Twins? We, the CUT project team, view the concept as a modular system whose building blocks can be assembled in new and different combinations for dealing with each individual issue and urban planning challenge. Read more about Urban Digital Twins.
