From November 28th to December 1st, the SERMAS team was at the heart of innovation at the Immersive Tech Week 2023 in Rotterdam. This international gathering served as a convergence point for developers in the extended reality (XR) field, fostering collaboration, and highlighting projects and technologies that will shape the future of immersive technology.
One of the standout moments during the event was SERMAS's active participation in the F6S Innovation session titled "Connecting Founders to Horizon Europe Funding Opportunities." This session explained the role played by European funds in driving XR innovation to new heights and facilitating collaborative ventures. Besides showcasing SERMAS's objectives and opportunities, the session also showed vast opportunities for XR enthusiasts to access funding and support from Horizon Europe.
SERMAS shared the spotlight with other XR projects, each contributing to the immersive technology landscape in unique ways: VOX Reality, XR2Learn, XR4ED, and CORTEX2. This collective showcase demonstrated the diversity and depth of XR applications, illustrating how this technology reshapes industries and experiences across the board.
At the vibrant heart of the event, booths 18 and 19 served as the dynamic playground for all participating projects to share their technologies and captivating demos. Here, SERMAS, joined by the partners from DW Innovation and Spindox Labs, shared the preliminary outcomes of our project, shedding light on the latest developments in our pilots and presenting the innovative SERMAS Toolkit. These booths became the connection where attendees were not only introduced to our current endeavours but also gained insight into the trajectory we envision for the future of the SERMAS project.
Summing up, the Immersive Tech Week 2023 event was not merely a showcase of technology; it was an exciting glimpse into the future of the power of XR. We share here our thank you to the entire VRDays team for organising this event and providing a space for innovation and collaboration.
Let’s see what the future holds for next year in XR and the SERMAS project. Don’t forget to join us on this journey as we continue to push the boundaries to make XR systems more socially acceptable.
See you next year!
