VR Science & Business Day

DIVR Award

Over the next few years, virtual reality will reach all areas of human life and fundamentally change them. The German Institute for Virtual Reality (DIVR) searches for the most innovative applications and concepts of German universities and awards them an annual prize.

2019 3 prizes and a special prize will be awarded:

  • best concept
  • best impact
  • best tech
  • Special prize “Gamechanger”

Individuals and teams from the university environment (university / FH, private university) participated.

The nominees presented their project to a jury of experts and a broad specialist audience as part of the “VR Science & Business Day” on 23 May 2019. The winners were announced the same evening.
