The ITN project “VRACE – Virtual Reality Audio for Cyber Environments“ establishes a multidisciplinary network that will train the next generation of researchers in the audio part of virtual and augmented reality.

The aim is to raise Virtual / Augmented Reality to a next level beyond gaming and entertainment by benefiting from the critical mass of expertise gathered in this distinguished consortium.



The overall mission of this ETN can be summarised as moving the focus of VR research from "virtual" to "reality" and training a next generation of researchers who will make today's visions the realities of tomorrow.


The main objective of VRACE is to raise VR audio to a next level, making significant progress on the way towards a physically correct virtual reality in order to enable a true world simulation for virtual testing and engineering.


The research activities of VRACE involve modelling of sound sources, studying sound propagation in complex interior spaces and in outdoor environments and investigating human perception and sound localisation.


15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) have been employed to undertake research in the framework of the project “VRACEVirtual Reality Audio for Cyber Environments”, and are funded for 36 months through the prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN) programme.

17 academic and industrial partners strive to make significant progress on the way towards a physically correct virtual reality and thus towards a true world simulation.



17 Partners from 8 countries


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 812719.
