Place and Community

One of our important areas of research investigation at SimVis is place and community. This includes research that investigates the application and role of emerging technologies in the cultural landscape in terms of preserving cultural assets and heritage. In addition, we also undertake research with schoolchildren as our research co-collaborators in our Living Lab.
