Research Projects

GTN | Games Technology Network

Four universities in North Rhine-Westphalia have joined forces to establish the "Games Technology Network" (GTN). The Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences (H-BRS) has taken on the coordination. Its partners are RWTH Aachen University, Düsseldorf University of Applied Sciences and Cologne University of Technology. The project is initially scheduled to run for two years and is supported by the NRW Future Fund. The declared aim of the new alliance is to build up a network of research institutions and industrial companies that will promote gaming technology and thus benefit NRW as a business location.

Big Bang to Big Data (B3D)

Big Bang to Big Data (B3D) is an interdisciplinary research, technology, and education alliance for data-intensive radio astronomy. The "cluster" links the scientific potentials of radio astronomy and data science. Funded under the Profiling 2020 funding program, the cluster aims to pool distributed expertise and resources and establish the data science expertise that radio astronomy research still lacks.

AR/ - Augmented und Virtual Reality in university education

AR/ aims to integrate the key technologies augmented and virtual reality more strongly into teaching and research at universities and to improve collaboration in this area. Software is being developed for this purpose. In addition, exemplary learning scenarios will be developed and services for universities will be established to support teachers in the use and development of their own AR/VR teaching and learning content.

Wine in Virtual Reality (Witality)

"Witality - Wine in Virtual Reality" represents a joint project of science and practice. The institutions involved in the project, Geisenheim University of Applied Sciences, Institute for Oenology (HGU), Bonn-Rhein Sieg University of Applied Sciences, Institute for Visual Computing (H-BRS), Pieroth Wein AG (PR) and DLG TestService GmbH (DLG), enable a close exchange between science and practice on the use of virtual reality (VR) for the sensory analysis of wine.
