Current Research: 7th Project

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.

Current Status

We are currently on our 7th project and the AREA Research Committee is seeking qualified research teams to respond to its call for proposals on or before April 1. The industry context for this exciting new research project is explained in this post issued March 12, 2020. 

Full information on the project needs, desired outcomes and required components of a winning proposal, including a submission form, can be found here.

Next Steps

As a project advances, the AREA may release information about the research in the form of blog posts or calls for participation in surveys or other forms of contribution/support to the project.
