Special Interest Groups (SIGs)


The XR4ALL Consortium strategically decided to structure & manage the XR4ALL Community and many of its activities using the two key concepts of Ambassadors and Special Interest Groups (SIGs).

You will find below the list of 14 SIGs confirmed at this time, together with the 15 Chairpersons –all Ambassadors– spearheading their launch and operation. This list will be progressively augmented.

The Consortium is very grateful to the first 7 pioneering ladies and 8 pioneering gentlemen volunteering time & energy to build up these SIGs in the best interest of the development of innovative XR technologies in Europe and of their transfer to industry.
