Extended Reality for Education and Research in Academia

About the initiative

XR ERA was created to promote closer collaboration in the field of extended reality (XR) in academia. It is a community-driven platform that connects people from educational and research institutes, industry, and other domains, both online and offline. XR ERA facilitate academics, institutes, and developing parties to share resources and knowledge. Our ultimate goal is to help create better XR experiences and ensure lasting impact.

Who we are

XR ERA is an open, independent platform that was founded by the Centre for Innovation at Leiden University. By gathering input from our network, we form ideas, construct content and realize connections.

Practical realization of the platform is currently done by Centre for Innovation’s personnel. External experts from within the XR community in the academic domain such as other Dutch universities, are involved in ideation and consultation regularly. The intention is to add more partners to the project so that ownership of the platform is shared between community members and preservation and the realization of new components extending the platform can really become a shared practice.
