Learn about Digital Twins and Urban Logistics through a new e-course!

By Cláudia Ribeiro / Updated: 10 Feb 2023
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.


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.
