Immersive VR Education is looking to transform education through the utilisation of virtual reality (‘VR’). It has already won multiple global accolades for its Apollo 11 and Titanic simulations and is working closely with leading institutions including the BBC and Oxford University. VRE will now prioritise the worldwide roll-out of ENGAGE, its leading digital education platform, providing students, educators and corporate trainers with an amazingly visual and realistic alternative to attending bricks and mortar institutes. TSSG has engaged with Immersive through the Enterprise Ireland Innovation Vouchers and Innovation Partnerships programmes, and looks forward to collaborating with the team in the future. Director of Innovation at TSSG, Kevin Doolin, said ‘this is a fantastic success story for a company that is truly at the cutting edge of VR tech, and we wish Dave, Sandra and the team every success in the future’.
