BE PART OF IT: EU COMMISSIONER MARIYA GABRIEL WILL OPEN THE ECIU UNIVERSITY XR CAMPUS!
On Monday, September 20th, EU Commissioner Mariya Gabriel will open the ECIU University XR Campus, and you can be part of it.
ECIU Extended Reality (XR) Campus is ECIU University in virtual reality. It is an environment that can be accessed from anywhere and anytime to be fully immersed into interaction and co-creation together with others. ECIU XR Campus provides instant collaboration opportunities for the ECIU University community throughout Europe. There are challenges to be solved together, and individual, agile, flexible opportunities for skills and competence development. People feel psychologically immersed as if they were physically present in the same space.
ECIU XR Campus is built as a park. The environment nourishes people to feel good, and at the same time, the aim is to abolish the traditional notion of universities and higher education as concrete buildings and lecture rooms. In the first stage, ECIU XR Campus is accessible with a VR headset or using a PC. In the future also access to mobile devices will be possible bringing the aspect of augmented reality into the picture.
ECIU XR Campus is made by ZOAN, a leading European XR studio based in Helsinki, Finland, in close cooperation with Tampere University.
The event will be streamed to YouTube. Follow the opening of Europe’s first VR Campus on 20 September at 11:30 CET (12:30 Vilnius time) here: https://www.eciu.org/news/be-part-of-it-eu-commissioner-mariya-gabriel-will-open-the-eciu-university-xr-campus
