Short introduction of partner, why do they participate and why is DT4GS important for IWT.

IWT represents the interest of barge owners/operators transporting goods and people on European Waterways. Like other transportmodes the sector will have to go for ZerO- Emission by 2050. Equally important is increasing the business bt 25% in 2030 as a contribution to Modal Shift. On top of that the industry is facing the challenge of shortage of staff as well as changed skills. To realise all of the objectives new technologies are needed. Technologies related to Digital Twinning are an opportunity for this sector.
