On 14 May the interfaculty V/AR Hub of the University of Groningen opens the Virtual Reality Lab (VR Lab) in the Reality Center of the CIT. The V/AR hub is a cooperation between the visualization center CIT, the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Spatial Sciences and the UMCG. Within the hub faculties works together with the use and making of V/AR applications. The VR Lab gives the opportunity to share knowledge, experiences of use and resources to learn how we could use VR and AR in Education and Research.
