The impact of these technologies is very diverse and applications can be found in training, simulations in construction, industry, healthcare, culture and media.

    An event for every discipline

    During this event, students will learn all about the possibilities of immersive technology! Students work in a transdisciplinary team for 3 days on an innovative solution for one of the challenges, hosted by external partners. Consider, for example, healthcare & haptic technology, society in the future or an empathetic, virtual avatar!   

    We are looking for students from different disciplines from different domains. Are you a software or hardware developer, 3D artist or storyteller? Or are you, for example, a student in healthcare or marketing & business? Or do you know students who would like to participate? Encourage them to participate in the hackathon! By participating, students gain unique experience and can win great prizes!
