  9. 9. Founding of a new institution The institutes VicomTech, GraphicsTech, MivTech, and CCG have been founded by Prof. em. Encarnação (advisory board) and are successful technological organizations is the „umbrella“ of those institutions co-founds new institutions running under the same PPP („Public- Private-Partnership“) model as the founding members (see DFKI)  New institutions are independent national entities  They are part of  Get consulting about the PPP models  Coaching in the „booting phase“  Involvement in (European) Projects  Technology exchange  Knowledge sharing
  10. 10. Opportunity for applied R&D New Media  Convergence of media  Videos and images based communication  Social Computing  Mobile Applications GraphicsMedia.Net offers a unique chance  Concentrate knowledge and expertise within the network  Long experience in technology transfer  Fast growth!
  11. 11. Future Media Lab Scientific Excellence  Reach high scientific visibility  Excellence and worldwide presence for the organization  Collaborate with top university and research institute world-wide Technology Transfer  Link novel ideas from science with marketable ideas  Generate a new scientific and technological asset base  License technical assets to companies, in particular SMEs  Involve local SME – create cluster  Create high-tech highly innovative spin-offs “Personal Development and “Brain Transfer”  Systematically furthering the skills and qualifications of staff members  Develop the necessary scientific, technical, professional and personal skills  “brain transfer” – the dissemination of technological know-how through individual persons going into private companies.
  12. 12. Topic: New Media – New Computational Power New media  Mobile interactive applications  Virtual world, Augmented reality, webTV  Video processing and analytics  Visual analytics (large data set analysis, mining) Medical Imaging  New imaging / tracking technologies & computational sensors  Measuring, Tracking, Monitoring, Assisting Social Media  New Visual Media Technologies  Finding, Modeling, Understanding, Protecting
