Breda University of Applied Sciences (BUas, prev. NHTV, around 7000 students and 700 staff) is a medium-sized, specialized University of Applied Sciences with Education, Business Innovation (BI), and Research & Development (R&D) in nine domains: Tourism, Hospitality, Facility, Leisure and Events, Logistics, Built Environment, (Entertainment, Serious) Games, Digital Media, Data & AI. In the Academy for Games and Media (AGM), we work a broad portfolio of externally funded R&D projects worldwide, with partners in a great many industries and sectors, such as the media and game industry, the infrastructure sector (water, urban planning), societal and cultural sectors (museums), universities, and knowledge institutes. Digital Realities and Experience Design and Measurement are two of the focal areas in the BUas R&D program.
In VIBE and innovation projects funded by EPIC, we optimize the development pipeline for Digital Humans / Avatars for their better use in media and (serious/entertainment) game productions. In the CRADLE lab, the next generation of games and digital media are designed and created. The Photogrammetry / 3D Scan Studio, the Virtual Productions Studio, and the XP-lab on BUas campus provide state-of-the-art R&D facilities.
