Understanding the importance of continuous progress, Arctur has its own R&D department, registered with the Slovenian Research Agency (ARRS). Arctur is involved in joint R&D projects with research institutes, universities and other R&D organizations from EU and globally.
Main topics of our R&D activities of course pertain to advanced HPC and Cloud computing and underlying XaaS paradigm; our work represents horizontal layer for a wide variety of vertical scientific and technological fields. We were pioneers in adapting HPC services to the needs of small and media enterprises (SME) and are still among trend setters in this specific area.
In recent years Arctur is also active in the field of mobile solutions, interlacing them with web and Cloud platforms. Company has also entered the fast developing field of 3D printing, both in data acquisition and 3D modelling, supported with remote rendering and parallel computations in a dedicated Cloud-based ecosystem. Endeavours related to 3D technologies are often pertinent to the field of cultural heritage.
Arctur has contributed to a number of non-ICT projects, spanning from various societal issues to cultural heritage, providing both technical expertise in development and support of specific tools, as well as understanding of technology related issues to enhance theoretical work in shaping strategies and roadmaps for future research and sustainability models.
