IDC & VR Innovation Academy

Walloon Region and EON Reality’s Interactive Digital Center (IDC) in Liège, Belgium lays the groundwork for a regional deployment of the Augmented and Virtual Reality (AVR) Platform in Belgium, as well as the Netherlands, Germany and Austria.

The IDC will contain an AVR Showroom with cutting edge AVR technology, a VR Innovation Academy, and an AVR Development Lab. The VR Innovation Academy will train local students to become AVR professionals through a 10-month course consisting of 4 months of study and 6 months of project-based learning. These students will learn the underpinning of AVR, 3D content creation, coding, and project management.

This new IDC will create content and applications tailored to the regional market and localize existing EON Reality content. As the Walloon Region’s economy evolves, Augmented and Virtual Reality will accelerate the training of workers through contextual knowledge applications and experiential training.

Augmented and Virtual Reality are some of the fastest growing sectors of our economy. These technologies are spreading far beyond the gaming world and into business and education, where its being used to train employees and better educate students. 

The VR Innovation Academy teaches the skills needed to create AVR applications for enterprise and education. The curriculum covers many diverse fields, including: architecture, product visualization, game creation, multimedia design, and broadcast media. In this fast-track program, students receive 10 months of training, including 6 months working directly on real-life projects in different market segments. At the end of the course, students will have a robust portfolio of work showing off their inputs.
