Apply for two open PhD positions focusing on Digital Twins – one at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and one at the School of Industrial Engineering and Management. Both projects will be carried out in collaboration with the newly established Dig-It Lab at KTH and industrial partners. Last Application date is 4 April 2024.

Digital Twins are a promising tool to improve the building energy performance and management, increase grid flexibility, maximize buildings’ storage capacity and renewable energy exploitation, but their full potential remains largely underexploited.
