The AREA Research Committee conducts an advocacy research program to continually advance AR technologies to the benefit of the AREA members and the wider AR ecosystem.
Frequency and Participation
Twice per calendar year, or approximately every six (6) months, the Research Committee solicits from Sponsor, Contributor and Non-commercial/Academic Members topics for the next AREA-directed research project. The members then vote for their preferred topic.
Once chosen, any organization, regardless of membership status, is invited to submit a proposal in response to the call.
From this page we provide access to the call for proposals focusing on the current research project.
We are currently developing our 7th research project and the AREA Research Committee will work with a qualified research team to produce the outputs.
In addition, we’ve just opened the call for topics for our 8th research project. If you’re an AREA member, find out how to get involved here.
As a project advances, the AREA may release information about the research in the form of blog posts, calls for participation in surveys or other forms of contribution/support to the project.
