The Advanced Visualization Center at the University of Aveiro (UA) aims to strengthen the environment for research, innovation and entrepreneurship, as well as to ensure the mobilization of effective and diverse data processing in all areas of knowledge: economy, health, climate, energy, mobility, social processes. It also aims to adopt standards and best practices to create interoperability.
