crisis management & resilience

How to anticipate and react to disruption with digital twins?

Health crises, wars and climate change are just a few examples of the many disruptions that have become part of our daily lives. At the company level, these disruptions cause delays in production and a considerable loss of earnings. It is no longer enough to wait for the storm to pass, companies need to anticipate possible crises to improve the likelihood of thriving, rather than simply surviving, through the next major disruption.

Watch now the virtual conference replay with crisis management experts to better understand how large companies can overcome the hazards of uncertainty thanks to digital twins.

The conference started with an exclusive presentation by Jean-Dominique Dulière, former Head of Crisis Responses and Exercises at NATO, who explained the importance of anticipation in crisis management and his vision of the use of new technologies and simulation so that industrial companies can also build a more robust future.

After a short introduction of  Cosmo Tech’s Prescriptive Simulation Twins by Romain Ropitault, Senior Product Owner at Cosmo Tech, the next speaker will be Olivier Seguin, Head of Business development EMEA-ATC expert at Thales. Olivier talked about a joint project with Cosmo Tech on the efficient management of flight plans at the European level thanks to digital twins. He shared his experience on the role of simulation in the management of unexpected events.

Finally, Thomas Malnoury, Technology Innovation Director at Accenture, along with Romain, guided us through Cosmo Tech’s AI-Simulation Platform and presented a use case designed in collaboration with Accenture on the management of contingencies in the supply chain.

Jean-Dominique Dulière

Former head of NATO crisis response systems and exercises

Jean-Dominique DULIÈRE is an international Civil Servant, and the Head of the Crisis Response Systems and Exercises Section (CRSE) in NATO Headquarters Brussels (NATO International Staff – Operations Division). The CRSE section supports the work of the North Atlantic Council, including through the Council Operations and Exercise Committee (COEC).



Jean-Dominique Dulière has been leading until recently and for more than ten years in Brussels, NATO’s crisis response systems and high level exercising in order to prepare the Alliance for potential unpredictable scenarios, crises and conflicts. Before that, he worked for the French Ministry of Defence including at Interagency level.

For him, anticipation is mandatory; and readiness, preparedness and resilience to future strategic shocks should form part of the everyday work of private companies, as most recently demonstrated by the devastating effects of the Covid crisis and of the Russia and Ukraine crisis on several large firms. In addition, in a world of interdependencies, some useful tools can assist large companies in anticipating or in assessing the cascading effects of strategic shocks and help them to mitigate them.
