Virtual and augmented reality are becoming increasingly important in scientific education and research, especially because they allow for experiences in education and research that can’t be otherwise obtained. The cutting-edge technology is maturing and most universities in Europe are experimenting with extended reality in some capacity. The Centre for Innovation of Leiden University is at the forefront of these developments. From this vantage point we see a distinct need for the exchange of apps and knowledge that are coming about in this field. To facilitate this exchange, we are developing a hub to facilitate collaboration and co-development between educational institutions, as well as with public and private partners.
