Featured Activities

3DLife is a funded by the European Union research project, a Network of Excellence (NoE), which aims at integrating research that is currently conducted by leading European research groups in the field of Media Internet. 3DLife's ultimate target is to lay the foundations of a European Competence Centre under the name "Excellence in Media Computing & Communication" or simply EMC2. Collaboration is in the core of the 3DLife Network of Excellence. Selected collaborative activities are presented below.

EMC2 Workshop/Conference Series

3DLife and EMC2 are proud organizers of WIAMIS 2013, to be held in Telecom ParisTech, Paris, France. Stay in touch for the latest info!

People Exchanges

The 3DLife Network of Excellence proudly promotes a series of people exchanges such as Senior Research Personnel Exchanges, PhD Student Exchanges, Industrial Placement of Research Personnel.

The 3DLife consortium partners have committed to build upon those activities and achieve the establishment of a sustainable European Competence Center: Excellence in Media Computing and Communication (EMC2).
