Congratulations to our students Sumin Kim, Imke Mayer, Alexander Palatnik, Marc Viladrich  and Timon Jäger!

What started off as an interdisciplinary project in early 2019, is now gradually developing into a business start up. The basic idea was to use Virtual Reality to develop tailor-made therapies for different psychological disorders, e.g. alcoholism. The current focus is on treating eating disorders. First prototype results are already so promising that the project was recently accepted into the Seedhouse accelerator program. With this professional help, there is a solid chance for the 5 students to further develop their ambitious project and finally transfer it into real business and to set up a company.
