Why we joined EU-VRi?

EU-VRi is seen as a forum where we can interact with other research organizations, industrial partners, and others to complement expertise, knowledge and to identify user or society needs in the fields where we can build a consortium.
That allowed us in the past to participate in a number or projects, mainly related to industrial safety, environmental management and training programs.
