Using Immersive Technology to Drive Your Business

May 24 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

An informal get together to explore how your business could use immersive technology including Virtual Reality, Augmented and Mixed Reality.

Are you exploring new ideas or ways of working with technology or perhaps you would like to ask some advice about a project?

This informal session jointly hosted by Immersive Business (Falmouth University) and EPIC eHealth (University of Plymouth) will be a chance to try out virtual reality (VR), Augmented and Mixed Reality in the relaxed setting of the EPICentre.

See the great innovations incorporating these technologies for the health sector and explore your own ideas of what may be possible – and what you could implement in your own business.

Demos will range from experiences developed within the region to budget friendly and accessible solutions that could be quickly applied to your business.

The Immersive Business experts from Falmouth University will be on hand to tell you more about available resources to help support you, plus advisors from EPIC will chat to you about business and funding opportunities currently available.

Light catering will be provided.

Pay and display parking is available in the on-site hospital car park.
