Engagement in research projects

In addition to the main business activity, vitero GmbH is also involved in various research projects. This is a matter of course for vitero, as the GmbH emerged as a spin-off from the Fraunhofer Institute (IAO). The findings from the research projects help us to improve vitero and the world of virtual collaboration.
