The digital networking of people, machines, value chains and products as part of Industry 4.0 is already ubiquitous. One of the key technologies for this are digital twins, which can be used to map the entire life cycle of a product along the value chain. Whether time and cost savings in plant construction or through predictive maintenance: Digital twins can revolutionize production in the future.

The Digital Capability Center (DCC) of the ITA Academy in Aachen supports companies in the implementation of Industrie 4.0 solutions. In their Model Factory 4.0, the DCC develops digital solutions for production and imparts expertise for implementation in its own company.

In her Innovation2GO presentation "The Digital Twin in Industrial Value Chains - Opportunities and Hurdles", Nicolina Praß, Managing Director of the ITA Academy, will give an overview of the use and benefits of a digital twin in production as well as the challenges in industry and provide a live demonstration on the DCC's model factory.

Note: The meeting will be held in English. Register already now so we can keep you updated with all further information. 

The WebTalk takes place across borders in the context of the "Digital Twin Academy" project. The Digital Twin Academy project is being carried out within the framework of Interreg V-A Euregio Meuse-Rhine with € 4,117,772.05 from the European Regional Development Fund. The federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia is contributing 30% of the funding for the North Rhine-Westphalian partners in this project.


With „NMWP Innovation2GO“ the NMWP.NRW cluster offers the community a digital, compact and future-oriented event format: at regular intervals on Thursdays from 4:00 p.m. We want to end the day together with you with an online seminar on a current and inspiring topic relating to innovations and key technologies.
