Thanks to a unique partnership between the public, private and academic sectors in Portugal and Brazil, the decommissioned pyrite mine in Lousal, in the Alentejo region of Portugal, has become the site of the first large-scale immersive Virtual Reality system ever installed in Portugal.
Today, the Lousal Live Science Centre provides an interactive learning experience about mining, as well as facilities for academic and commercial research and product testing using the latest virtualisation technologies. The Lousal Live Science Centre is part of the Portuguese Live Science Centres Network, an initiative of the Portuguese Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education to promote interactive science and technology education and the dissemination of science and technology in Portugal.
The virtualisation infrastructure at Lousal, known as a CAVE-Hollowspace, is one of the first in Europe to emerge from Portuguese and Brazilian academic research based in Windows platforms and Barco projection systems, and is oriented to science-based entertainment, science research and R&D services for industry. The system is owned by Fundação Frederic Velge, a joint venture between SAPEC, the Belgium company that owns the Lousal Mine, which was in operation until the late 1980s, and the Grandola City Hall in Portugal. The Lousal initiative is a joint collaboration between several organizations: in Portugal, Fundação Frederic Velge, the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education, and several public universities (ISCTE, Technica University of Lisbon, Classical University of Lisbon); and in Brazil, Petrobrás and PUC-Rio de Janeiro, a public university.
