Projekt V/AR Application Center

What we offer:
The application center project has set itself a wide range of tasks: it will be about supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular with the introduction and use of new V / AR technologies. The national and international visibility of Baden-Württemberg as a »V / AR-Land« is to be promoted. It is important to effectively represent the interests of technology users from business vis-à-vis the large manufacturers by forming a critical mass. The V / AR start-up scene is also to be networked and stimulated with established companies and user companies.

Numerous measures are planned for this purpose as part of the project work. These include V / AR application lighthouses, V / AR workshops at Fraunhofer IAO and VDC, a V / AR start-up forum, match making (also in the sense of a user-manufacturer dialogue) and novel narrative Applications, e.g. for V / AR-based training.

Those interested in the project are invited to contact us. Contact persons are Dr. Matthias Bues from the Visual Technologies Lab at Fraunhofer IAO, Prof. Christoph Runde from VDC and Prof. Volker Helzle from the Animation Institute of the Baden-Württemberg Film Academy.

The project called "Application Centers Virtual and Augmented Reality" is funded by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economics, Labor and Housing. At the government press conference on November 7, 2017, the state government announced measures and budgets for the implementation of its digitization strategy. The project is part of the Economy 4.0 initiative, which emerged from this digital strategy. The project will run for two years.
