XR in 2030: Opening WORDS

This fifteenth edition of Stereopsia is held under the high-level chairmanship of the Belgian Secretary of State for Digitization, Mr. Mathieu Michel.
Mr. Michel will unveil the focus of the European digital policy he intends to pursue during the Belgian Presidency of the European Council in the first semester of 2024.

A senior representative of the European Commission’s CNECT Directorate General will also present her plans to boost the European XR sector beyond the Horizon Europe program, which is currently under way. DG CNECT has developed a “Virtual Worlds” initiative, the results of which will be premiered during the inaugural session of Stereopsia.

The XR sector is booming, but European players remain underdogs on a global scale, despite the fact that innovation is at the heart of our companies and universities. How can the national and European public sector support the consolidation process?

This session is co-organized with XR4Europe, the European federation of XR stakeholders, and will be moderated by Michael Barngrover.
