The Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship in collaboration with VR Sverige will organize a VR Sci Startups Alley, where small and upcoming companies can present their Sci-VR cases.
Workshops over the following two days will explore the use of VR and augmented reality in such areas as communication, living services and construction, representing perspectives from both international academic research centers and industrial R&D.

The motto of KTH is Vetenskap & Konst, or Science & Art, which fits any VR project where high tech and scientific ideas meet the creative process of high level visualization. VR can help us to see the unseen.
