CCG integrates the GraphicsMedia.net network
GraphicsMedia.net, the International Network for the Cooperation in Applied Research in Computer Graphics, Multimodal-Multimedia Technologies, and Visual Interactive Digital Media Technologies, was created on December 16th, 2010, with Headquarters in Kaiserslautern (Germany). Six international reference partners of Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Panama will start a strong collaboration network for international applied research.
In this context, several international centres have identified the importance to strengthen their visions and synergies in science, technology, knowledge transfer and innovation, beyond the informal relations that are anyhow established due to particular collaborations, and beyond exclusively scientific networks. For this, these centres consider necessary to create and steer a formal organization that can provide the means to keep a robust network, reach strategic goals, share a common vision and define together a strong model of collaboration.
In order to be excellent, best-in-kind at the local level, but at the same time be a relevant player at international level, these institutions need a global view, a critical mass, a robust collaboration framework, and a strong international presence. Thus, they will be able to shape and define their own future being proactive actors at international level in applied research and technology transfer.
