Centre for Digital Built Britain



A significant amount of work has been conducted over the last year by the Digital Framework Task Group (DFTG), part of The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB), in order to set the foundations and draft a plan (the Roadmap) for the creation of the Information Management Framework, which will be a key enabler of the UK’s National Digital Twin. CDBB invites proposals to overview and plan the work of the Enablers Stream of the Roadmap.

Bids are invited from academic and commercial organisations or from individuals but must have a designated Stream Lead who will take ownership of the required work. Collaborative team bids are also welcome, especially if such teams can demonstrate a greater capacity to provide insights and to cover the scope required.
