IPCity EU project launch

Sun, 01.01.2006

1 Jan 2006 - The contract negotiations on the EU IST integrated project Interaction and Presence in Urban Environments (IPCity) were successfully concluded, and hence the project is expected to launch on 1 January 2006. The project is co-ordinated by Fraunhofer FIT; HIIT's User Experience Research Group is one of the eleven partners from five different countries in EU. The vision is to provide citizens, visitors, as well as professionals involved in city development or the organisation of events with a set of mixed reality technologies that enable them to collaboratively envision, debate emerging developments, experience past and future views or happenings of their local urban environment. The leader of HIIT's team in IPCity is Dr Giulio Jacucci.
