“Immerse UK is the UK’s leading membership organisation for immersive technologies bringing together industry, research and academic organisations, public sector and innovators to help fast track innovation, R&D, scalability and company growth.
We talked about supporting the community and creating an accessible talent pipeline for those wishing to explore the sector and what they could do within it.
We also talked about some of the ways Immerse UK have been helping to support the growth of the sector, including the new Immerse UK Awards programme.
The Immerse UK Awards, announced at the 2022 Beyond Conference in Cardiff, aims to help connect students to the XR industry. The idea is to discover where the best XR talent is coming from in the UK, and to bridge the pathway from academic learning to real world problem solving.
All ten finalists will be invited to London to showcase their work (travel fees included) at the Immerse UK Award Reception at ARUP’s headquarters in London on 10 May 2023, where the five category winners, and the two grand prize internship winners will be announced.”
