EUNIS AR/VR SIG joins XR4Europe

EUNIS AR/VR SIG is excited to team up with the XR4Europe and the European eXtended Reality community!

XR4Europe is a pan-European association that federates all the XR professionals, organisations and initiatives to support the development, promote, and represent XR innovation, industry and creativity made in Europe.

This new association was created by members of the XR4ALL consortium together with European territorial clusters in order to continue and amplify the actions of XR4ALL. It benefits from the recognition of the European institutions and constitutes the adequate legal framework to defend the interests of the XR community towards these institutions, but also to bring to its members all the services that will support them in their development.

XR4Europe continues and enhance the objectives of the H2020 project XR4ALL.

Title: Financial Management of research projects in custom SAP Fiori at Ghent University

The competition for research funding is often a challenge. Once granted, the challenge is even bigger, trying to keep up with the financial administration for these projects. Getting the tasks done at the right time by the right person, maintaining transparency within the research team. It is a complex, stressful process, full of room for mistakes. In order to tackle all of the pitfalls, we molded the whole financial process into a workflow, integrated into a series of Fiori apps, designed specifically depending on the role one has to perform a task. The only thing a user has to do when coming into the office, is to open up their Fiori launchpad and immediately they can see if there are any tasks awaiting to get the flow running again. Being able to follow-up on budget and actuals at any point in the lifecycle of a project, without having to dig into reports, excel files using many different transactions, is a huge improvement for all involved. Needless to say, the results in efficiency, administrative and financial transparency are mindblowing.
