The competence and innovation center for digital product development, Virtual Reality and cooperative engineering, the Virtual Dimension Center (VDC) bundles the know-how of leading developers, suppliers and users of the technologies of the digital product development, Virtual Reality and cooperative engineering with an attached demo and service centre. Members of this network are enterprises, universities, research institutions and facilities of the education which offer these technologies or have actively integrated these technologies into their product creation process. Meanwhile, 60 companies and institutions contribute their capabilities to the network.

Special attention is paid to the imbedding of small and medium-sized enterprises to increase their innovation and competition abilities by transferring technology and knowledge  of the network.

The demo centre serves as a living lab for the industry and the education facilities where new products in the above mentioned technology area can be tested and educated and also co- developed in coordination with the research facilities. As a competence and innovation centre of the Stuttgart Region the VDC has set up a industry-driven network. This network consists of soft- and hardware manufacturers, several research facilities and various users of engineering support technologies such as virtual reality, collaborative engineering, visualisation, simulation technologies, geographic information systems and IT- technology in general. The VDC has already initiated and managed projects dealing with engineering-, IT and especially innovation and SME -related themes, bringing together many well-experienced partners and many innovative companies. Beside its members the VDC has a network of associated partners. The network gets expanded by close connections to regional chambers of commerce (with a number of member companies, especially SME), other regional associations in EU with very good access to research infrastructure. At present, the VDC is involved in three EU-funded projects with FP6: CoSpaces, CoVES and BeLCAR.
