VRVis receives a Special Prize of the newly established Innovation Award 2020/2021
VRVis' strong activity in the field of patent applications is rewarded with the Special Prize of the new Innovation Award.
The fields of application of the patented solutions of the VRVis are broad and range from applications in biomedicine to innovative solutions in inclusive digitalization, such as the "pasta printer", which makes the sustainable and reusable printing of tactile reliefs possible.
Our Biomedical Image Informatics group, in collaboration with our research partners such as Agfa Healthcare, has already developed a number of patented solutions for medicine, which, for example, support the diagnostic work of doctors.
In the IPC class G06 "Data Processing; Calculating or Counting" VRVis leads the list of patents and patent citations and received the Special Prize of the Innovation Award.
Patents are key components of both economic and scientific progress and are considered in many places to be the "hardest currency" of corporate innovation. In order to highlight the great potential of patented research results and solutions, the business magazine Trend and the ÖGVS - Society for Consumer Studies have presented the Innovation Award for the first time this year to Austrian companies and research institutions with particularly high patent activity.
In the category "Data Processing; Calculating or Counting" of the International Patent Classification, VRVis took first place with its patent solutions in 2018 and 2019, which were developed from application-oriented research, and was awarded the Special Prize of the Innovation Award 2020/2021.
