The inaugural Immerse UK Awards, launched in January 2023, aims to connect students to the XR industry. Supported by Immerse UK’s Advisory Board and Academic Working Group, this is a first of its kind competition for UK students building innovative ideas, experiences or projects for the XR industry. This award is a collective opportunity for the immersive tech sector to discover where the best XR talent is coming from in the UK, and to bridge the pathway from academic learning to real world problem solving.
