The program actively promotes artists and gives them publicity. subnetAIR counteracts the bottleneck in production and presentation rooms and, with the provision of infrastructure and know-how in our field of activity, reduces barriers in favor of realizing sound project ideas.

Subnet provides a working budget (1000 €), space and infrastructure as well as know-how in media art projects with the focus on physical computing, hardware-hacking and tinkering.

Since 2016, the Center for Human Computer Interaction (HCI) at University of Salzburg ( joined forces with subnetAIR. subnetAIRs can freely access the HCI infrastructure.

Established in 2005 as research unit at the former ICT&S Center, currently approx. 40 researchers study the interplay between humans and computers in order to enable desired interactions and explore desirable futures“ (Read more: subnetAIRs will have the great possibility to use their facilities and network with local researches.
