Meetup #19 – Advancing XR Regulation: Exploring Pros, Cons and Suggestions for a Human Centred Development Process in XR4Human

Date: July 3rd, 2023
Time: 16:00 – 17:30 CET
Location: Online

In this meet-up, Marco Correa Pérez – lawyer specialised in Intellectual Property, Data Protection, and Digital Technologies Law and currently legal council at Leiden University Learning and Innovation Centre, will introduce XR4Human, an EU-funded project that aims to co-create ethical guidelines and address policy, regulatory, governance, and interoperability issues surrounding XR technologies.

During the meet-up, we will delve into the intricacies of XR’s integration with other technologies, potential for standardisation of hardware and software, and the varying legislations across the EU. XR technology opens up endless possibilities, but it also poses risks, be it physical, mental, or legal. It is crucial to acknowledge and mitigate these risks within policy frameworks.

Join us for an enlightening session and dive into the current state of XR regulation and its relationship with industry, government, and civil society stakeholders. Gain insights into the way forward for a human-oriented approach to XR technology.
