The new Knowledge Metaverse hub will bring XR to students throughout An-Najah National University and beyond.
IRVINE, CA, April 21, 2022 – EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces the inauguration of a new Knowledge Metaverse hub in Palestine alongside its partner, An-Najah National University. The Center will become the city’s new home for educating and training the next generation of XR developers and a technological hub for advanced XR solutions for all parties invested in the knowledge metaverse.
For the An-Najah National University inauguration, EON Reality Founder and Chairman Dan Lejerskar recorded a video for the event in Nablus on the northern West Bank to welcome the latest addition to the global network and knowledge metaverse. The inauguration also turned the largest university in Palestine into one of the country’s leaders in the XR industry.
EON Reality is proud to expand the knowledge metaverse in Palestine through the new hub, connecting the local users with the company’s existing global network. With the official inauguration of the hub, students, faculty, entrepreneurs, and employers in Palestine will now have access to cutting-edge XR solutions — such as EON-XR, EON Merged XR, and EON Spatial Meetings — and be able to both learn from and contribute to the worldwide knowledge metaverse going forward.
“Having already partnered with An-Najah National University to bring EON-XR solutions to the university, we are ecstatic that they are deepening their commitment to the knowledge metaverse. I believe this is a transformative moment for everyone involved,” said Dan Lejerskar, EON Reality’s Founder and Chairman. “With deeper roots in Palestine, our global network and the knowledge metaverse will become stronger. The possibilities for local students, businesses, and others interested in the future of technology are limitless. I’m very happy that we’ve been able to accomplish so much already with the university, and I look forward to watching it develop in the future.”
In addition to the speeches and inauguration ceremony, attendees from both parties were joined by important government officials, media, and other valuable participants for the grand opening.
