We’re delighted to share that we organized and cohost the first XR Research Awards with 319 applications and 89 high-quality proposals. The XRRA provided a new opportunity for researchers and content creators to apply to a €50,000 fund to study behaviour in VR and promote the use of objective data to understand human behavioural responses in VR.
We are proud to support researchers who are looking to use VR as a research laboratory to study human behaviour. We are happy to partner with leaders in the fields of hardware, physiological monitoring, and data analytics so that academic or commercial researchers and content creators can get accurate information on how people respond to VR.
We are delighted to announce that our CEO, Charles Nduka, will be one of the judges for the first XR Research Awards.
The XR Research Awards targets worldwide researchers, content creators or individuals affiliated with an academic, research, clinical, rehabilitation, or commercial company that may participate.
The motivation for the awards is to foster an evidence-based approach to VR so that this amazing technology can fulfil its potential. VR represents a unique way to understand human behaviour by monitoring behaviours and responses to known stimuli.
