XR Impact receives grant to help bridge societal divide

We are thrilled to announce that we are one of the selected projects by MediaFutures to develop innovative ideas to tackle misinformation using data and receive funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The project: DEEP (Data Engagement & Enhanced Perspectives)

The Covid-19 pandemic has increased the division in society. Across the world, large groups of people feel vulnerable and deceived. As a society, and as individuals, we need help to unite and heal. And this is the purpose of DEEP: we are creating a platform to increase the understanding of other’s and their perspectives.

The platform builds on insights from behavioural science, data feminism, and VR and our target group is Change makers, specifically, policy makers, thought leaders, museums and schools.
