How can we unleash the full potential of data to improve policymaking at local and regional level and take better-informed decisions? How can we work together across borders and levels of governance? What is the role of local digital twins in achieving this?

In Living-in.EU, we bring together cities, regions, and member states to discuss the way forward. We look into the European Digital Infrastructure Consortium on Networked Local Digital Twins Towards CitiVerse, its potential, and also of a wider range of joint actions.
