The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) is seeking a supplier to develop an interactive online demonstrator for the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP26.

Part of the CDBB’s National Digital Twin Climate Resilience Demonstrator Project (CReDo), it will be used as a public visualisation tool at the COP26 in Glasgow this autumn to show how connected digital twins can support climate resilience. 

A digital twin will be developed across energy, water and telecoms networks – with a focus on the impact of extreme weather such as flooding – to help improve climate resilience across infrastructure. 

CDBB is looking for an interactive demonstrator as well as one that can be run as a simulated version with no input from the viewer. It has asked that the demonstrator proposals be aimed at “non-technical, diverse public audiences” and not contain any real data or refer to real locations due to security.

The chosen supplier will use data developed with the CreDo team, and will be able to run meetings and workshops with them. 

For further information about the project visit here. The deadline for bids is 22 August.
