Extended Reality for Education and Research in Academia
Let’s connect and exchange!
XR ERA aims to bring people from education, research and industry together, both online and offline. We want to stimulate the sharing of XR knowledge and applications, to drive community development.
Ultimately, XR ERA aims to enhance education and research in academia by making use of what XR has to offer.
XR ERA is founded by Leiden University, Centre for Innovation.
XR ERA is an open, independent platform. Do you work in education, research, or is your work is strongly affiliated with either of these disciplines? Whether you’re an XR veteran or just a curious newbie, you’re welcome to join us!
