Learn about Digital Twins and Urban Logistics in new e-course!
As it draws closer to its conclusion, the LEAD project is launching a Massive Open Online Course to share its main findings on Digital Twin’s potential to respond to the severe strain put on last-mile delivery systems by on-demand logistics.
LEAD is launching its shiny new Massive Open Online Course, open to all interested. It will launch on 23 February, 11:00-12:00 CET, with the goal of unlocking the potential of Digital Twins for sustainable on-demand urban logistics.
It builds upon the results of the project’s Living Labs to deliver a Digital Twinning Capacity Building Programme, with a first-of-its-kind focus on urban logistics, to improve the capabilities and skills of personnel of authorities and researchers on open-source tools and modelling for Digital Twins. The course will also provide a general introduction to urban freight, with a focus on on-demand and last-mile logistics.
It is split into five different units spread out over the course of a couple of months, with a break planned between Units 1-2 and Units 3-5. Students will have to complete all units to achieve course certification.
The course will be launched on 23 February, and will be “live” until end of May. Students can enrol at any time. In order to achieve certification, they need to complete the course by the date indicated, and complete the assignments. Afterwards, students will still be able to enrol and follow the lectures, but will not be eligible for certification.
Interested? Sign up here to join the kick-off webinar on 23 February, 11:00–12:00 CET to learn more about what to expect from the e-course and each unit. The e-course is free of charge and will be hosted on the Mobility Academy platform. You can find instructions on how to register here and the registration link here.
