Network of Science, Business and Healthcare

The VIVATOP project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. It is coordinated at the TZI of the University of Bremen by the Digital Media Lab (Prof. Dr. Rainer Malaka) and supported by the Department of Virtual Reality and Computer Graphics (Prof. Dr. Gabriel Zachmann). These teams are primarily responsible for VR interaction and VR algorithms. The Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Medicine (MEVIS) analyzes and visualizes the medical image data, while apoQlar GmbH as a specialist in augmented reality and cirp GmbH for 3D printing are involved. The szenaris GmbH is responsible for training and education and the University Hospital Oldenburg participates as application partner. The project is scheduled for completion in September 2021.
