IRVINE, CA, June 11, 2018 – EON Reality, the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry and education, and Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) announce the opening of an Interactive Digital Center (IDC) in Davenport, Iowa. This is the second phase of the EON Reality and EICC partnership that started with opening a VR Innovation Academy in 2016 at their downtown Davenport location.
The IDC is located in the new the Scott Community College Urban Campus in downtown Davenport, which opened this year. The Urban Campus is approximately 90,000 square feet in size and the West (Classroom) Building features EICC’s virtual reality, computer information technology, business, science, nursing, medical assisting and emergency medical technician labs.
“By expanding our partnership with EON Reality from the Innovation Academy to an Interactive Digital Center, we are continuing to deliver on the promise to bring the latest technologies and educational opportunities to our local community,” said Don Doucette, EICC Chancellor. “Helping to create valuable jobs for our students and assisting local companies in upskilling their employees is an important part of our mission here at EICC. EON Reality and our partnership has helped us immensely in this regard.”
The EON Innovation Academy at EICC has already graduated one class of students and currently is recruiting students for its third session, which begins on August 20th. The IDC’s staff was drawn from the first class of students and a local business development representative hired from the area.
“The Quad Cities area and EICC is in a prime location to provide knowledge transfer solutions based on our SaaS EON-XR Platform to the large manufacturing and agricultural industries in the upper Midwest,” said Mats W. Johansson, President of EON Reality. “EICC has been a tremendous partner both in creating a great learning environment for future VR and AR professionals but also in reaching out to the local business community to use our Platform and Products to help solve knowledge transfer problems.”
EON Reality’s Davenport IDC is located at 101 West Third St. Davenport, IA 52801.
