As part of the TwinBy project, Virtual City Systems, in collaboration with Creative Climate Cities and CADFEM, has developed a qualification program for Bavarian municipalities for the development and implementation of Urban Digital Twins (UDZ). The program is based on the SDDI framework and includes a modern and innovative blended learning concept for municipal employees, which combines group events, virtual and face-to-face, as well as eLearning modules and digital materials for self-study.
The overarching goal of the project is to support Bavarian municipalities in their digital transformation and to establish Urban Digital Twins as a fundamental building block of urban development.

Bavaria’s Digital Minister Judith Gerlach explains, “These digital models will help our Bavarian municipalities respond better to current and future challenges. In this way, we bring state-of-the-art planning solutions to our Bavarian city halls and district offices, where they support good, data-driven decisions.”
A key role for the successful planning, realization and implementation of an Urban Digital Twin is played by the training of the employees involved in the project.
The qualification concept is composed of two learning phases in which the necessary expertise can be acquired. Phase 1 in the spring provides a general overview, while phase 2 in the fall focuses on technical basics and competencies as well as the implementation of a use case.
