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: The VRVis conducts a variety of research projects that are often financed by funding organisations. These include the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG), the Vienna Business Agency, the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the international institutions of the EU and ESA. Innovation Vouchers for funded projects in the financial portfolio range from the sum of € 10.000 up to several million euros and the portfolio itself covers a range of disciplines from basic research through to applied industrial research.
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.
