The Human-Computer Interaction and Visual Analytics team of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences has initiated a new European Research Network to strengthen and supporting actions in respect of European collaborative research. The main goal of this network is to create a sustainable European (but not limited on Europe) strategic alliance to foster European research and innovation in the area of Visual Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Simulation, Prediction, Smart Manufacturing and Technology and Innovation Management including innovations for business, manufacturing and e-Governance. On the fundament of the research network, research actions such as preparing a funding proposal (e.g. COST actions) should be faced and simplified in particular toward finding partners and expertise.
The current network consists among many others of the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (Bulgaria), Babeș-Bolyai University (Romania), Riga Technical University (Latvia) and Major Cities of Europe. The network is still seeking for new research institutions and companies that are willing to research in the named fields and aim on initiating therefore European research projects. Particularly due to the digitalization challenge and Corona, there is currently a high demand and need for innovative solutions to face the problems of struggling enterprises.
