FHL Vive Center for Enhanced Reality

FHL Vive Center for Enhanced Reality was founded at UC Berkeley in 2017 thanks to a generous donation by HTC Corporation and the Faith Hope & Love Foundation, which were co-founded by Berkeley alum Cher Wang and her husband Wenchi Chen.


The main goals of the center are to sponsor critical fundamental research and high-impact applications in the emerging fields of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and at the same time serve as the central hub to facilitate the deployment of disruptive VR, AR, and AI technologies across the Berkeley campus for cross-disciplinary research and education.

We aim to achieve these goals by offering seed grant to our faculty, supervising and facilitating student research activities, and fostering external industry partnerships with other stakeholders.
