Organisation

The organisation of VEC is dynamic in the sense that all people and organisations with an interest in virtual ergonomics are welcome to join us. The people and organisations involved in VEC's activities, and their degree of activity, is likely to vary over time depending on what research projects and other assignments that are currently undertaken. However, there is a core group of people that will form a solid part of the VEC organisation.
