About us

XR4ALL is an initiative by the European Commission to strengthen the European XR industry.

What is XR?eXtended Reality (XR) – often referred to as “XR” – is the umbrella term used for Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), and Mixed Reality (MR), as well as future realities immersive technologies might create.
What are the issues at stake?After years of research & development, XR technology has reached a tipping point where it becomes accessible to small businesses and consumers, thereby warranting market introduction. With over $4 billion in worldwide investments to date, the industry is set for a bright future but further financing is key for its success, especially in the European Union (EU).
What are the objectives?By 2020, in Europe, the total production value of the XR industry should reach €15-34 billion, and the number of direct and indirect jobs 225,000-480,000. However, the European XR scene is relatively less known, quite fragmented, and faced with strong outside competition, especially from Asia and the USA.
What are the benefits for the Members?Members of XR4ALL benefit for free from the wide range of services and tools available on the website (some currently in construction), and from a wide network of XR professionals.
