At Foundry, we have multiple R&D tech teams working on the technology of the future. As well as high-impact, close-to-product technologies, we explore longer term challenges, working with industry partners and academic institutions. These projects support Foundry’s core industries and build the art and technology of visualisation. Take a look at some of the fascinating research we’re doing at the moment.
