Visionair is an acronym for "VISION Advanced Infrastructure for Research".
Visionair calls for the creation of a European infrastructure for high level visualisation facilities that are open to research communities across Europe and around the world. By integrating existing facilities, Visionair aims to create a world-class research infrastructure for conducting state-of-the-art research in visualisation, thus significantly enhancing the attractiveness and visibility of the European Research Area (ERA). With over 20 members across Europe participating, Visionair offers facilities for Virtual Reality, Scientific Visualisation, Ultra High Definition, Augmented Reality and Virtual Services.
Current scientific challenges concern issues such as climate evolution, environmental risks, molecular biology, health, and energy. These issues require the management of increasingly complex and voluminous information, thus calling for the development of ever more powerful visualisation methods and tools.

Visionair Target groups
The Visionair members propose to build a common infrastructure that grants researchers from Europe and around the world to access to high level visualisation facilities and resources. Both physical access and virtual services are provided by the infrastructure. Full access to visualization-dedicated software is offered through the Call for Project, while physical access to high level platforms will be partially accessible (about 20% of global usage) to other scientists, free of charge, based on the excellence of the project submitted. An alternative root to collaborate with Visionair is to join the Partner Club.
The Project Visionair is funded by the European Commission under grant agreement 262044.
