Growing Change2Twin outreach
It is very important to us to reach out to manufacturing communities all over Europe and make them aware about the benefits of digital twins and of our funding. Now that we have gathered lots of expertise through the pilot experiments and open calls, we have engaged our ambassadors to disseminate them in their own communities. The ambassadors support us by organising events, writing articles and by promoting Change2Twin in social networks. Now that we have started our final open call, we are happy that our ambassadors will spread the word and motivate SMEs and midcaps to apply for our funding!
