Keynote at the Science for Policy event ‘Shaping the Next Generation of Virtual Worlds’


I was selected on behalf of a large multidisciplinary team of colleagues to present the results of our JRC report on Next Generation Virtual Worlds in the Shaping the Next Generation Virtual Worlds – Science for Policy event.

To dive deeper into the EU’s strategic approach to immersive technologies, the JRC organised this event gathering experts and policymakers to foster collaboration and knowledge exchange to navigate the socio-economic and technological landscapes of virtual worlds. Key discussions addressed the role of research in policy, the socio-economic implications of virtual worlds, and the EU’s actions to support new business models and applications in virtual environments. You (through your avatar!) can visit the 3D virtual room containing the most relevant material resulting from the event.
