As a COMET center we have an extensive network, which we use actively. Our network is made up of the following partners (plus others) and is sub-divided into three different but closely linked groups.
Funding Institutions: VRVis Zentrum für Virtual Reality und Visualisierung Forschungs-GmbH is funded by BMK, BMDW, Styria, SFG, Tyrol and Vienna Business Agency in the scope of COMET - Competence Centers for Excellent Technologies (879730) which is managed by FFG.
COMET partners are the scientific and industrial partners who conduct research projects with VRVis as part of the COMET funding programme. They utilise the synergy effects of cross-company projects in their research and also benefit from VRVis' basic research projects. COMET partners are also members of the VRVis association, the owner of VRVis GmbH, and therefore, among other things, are able to influence the selection of future research topics.
Community partners are either scientific partners at universities with whom VRVis is conducting research activities (preparing scientific papers, for example), or industrial partners outside of the COMET funding framework who implement research projects together with VRVis.
