04 January 2021

The Center for Information Technology (CIT) invites teachers and researchers of the University of Groningen and University Medical Centre to push the boundaries of the real world and submit project proposals for the application of virtual or augmented reality (xR) and 3D data in research and/or education. With this “call for proposals” the CIT offers a total of 900 hours of development capacity and support, including a material budget (max. €7500 per project).

Support for innovative research and education

The visualisation experts of the CIT are specialised in data visualisation and the creation of interactive xR environments or custom applications for interaction with xR/3D data. For example, their work can allow you to acquire research data or train specific skills in a virtual environment. Apart from the offer of expertise, the visualisation crew offers the facilities and equipment needed for the optimal xR/3D experience, like a 3D theatre and a VR-lab with different (head-mounted) displays, 3D printing and recording. The CIT aims at supporting innovative research and education with these technologies and facilities and is asking for project proposals which spear head xR/3D.
