The intercontinental trek will include meetings with more than 80 partners new and old.
EON Reality, the global leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality-based knowledge and skills transfer for industry and education, announces the continuation of its global kickoff tour surrounding the foundation of the knowledge metaverse.
After beginning this past June in Korea for the Asian Leadership Forum, EON Reality’s senior leadership team members — most notably Chairman Dan Lejerskar and President Mats Johansson — have continued to travel the world to meet with both new and existing partners to discuss their participation in growing the knowledge metaverse.
As a part of the kickoff tour EON Reality offers selected countries and regions the EON Knowledge Metaverse (EKM) Program that provides grants to governments ranging from $27M – $150M for post-pandemic resilient recovery in education, enterprise, and communities. Together with our 42 million EON-XR users and partners, EON Reality is building the knowledge metaverse that covers (together with Learn for Life (NGO) and inter-governmental organizations) 90%-95% of the investment in creating an XR center.
With over 73 countries already committed to the metaverse’s growth and dozens more to come, EON Reality recently visited several locations in Central America — meeting with partners such as the Ministers of Education in the Bahamas, Jamaica, Ecuador and Panama, as well as the Secretary of the Department of Superior Education, Science, Technology, and Innovation of Ecuador, and Universidad Tecnologica de Panama for the university’s 40th anniversary — before heading to South America, where the Chairman consulted with SENAI São Paulo among various others.
“So far, our time spent with partners around the world has been an illuminating experience in seeing just how quickly we can potentially grow the knowledge metaverse. By offering the benefits and accepting the participation of our many partners, we are already seeing the available content and information available within the knowledge metaverse expand at an exponential rate. I believe that by the end of the year, we will have participating universities, governments, and businesses in virtually every area around the world — and then we will look to increase that base even further in the years to come.”Dan LejerskarChairman of EON Reality
In the coming weeks, Lejerskar and Johansson will continue their journeys both across the Americas as well as throughout the EMEA region in September — visiting Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt, South Africa, Botswana, Romania, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Kosovo, the Czech Republic, Germany, Ireland, and the United Kingdom — and the APAC region in October — in which they intend to make stops in locations such as India, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, and Hong Kong. While these tours will likely last throughout the fall and into the winter, the entire EON Reality team is already preparing to reach new lands and expand the knowledge metaverse even further both by the end of the year and throughout 2022.
