Home Staff Labs Partners Internationalization Contacts


IWU (Fraunhofer) and DIAS are two nationally and internationally recognised leading research and development institutions working at excellence level, among other subjects, in the fields of Computer Graphics, Virtual Reality, Numeric Simulation, Design Technology, Quality and Reliability for Innovation and Production Technology.

The parties have decided to expand existing contacts and scientific collaboration with the principal aim of establishing a Joint Laboratory "Interactive Design and Simulation for Engineering Applications" (IDEAS). The JL_IDEAS has competences in the following fields of research, that are all fundamental in Computer Graphics, Virtual Reality, Numeric Simulation, Design Technology and Production Technology.


I-Design is the IDEAS creative area: industrial, transportation and interior design, corporate communication and knowledge dissemination are their areas of interest.

Among the multisectoral expertise, the flagship is the creative area where different professional specialists with different planning cultures work together synergistically creating an innovative, competitive and efficient service at the same time.
