IRVINE, CA, September 24, 2018 – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Augmented and Virtual Reality (AVR) based knowledge transfer for industry and education, announces the start of the first VR Innovation Academy (VRIA) class at EON Reality’s Dominican Republic Interactive Digital Center (IDC) located at the Parque Cibernético de Santo Domingo (PCSD). This IDC was established with a grant from the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) as well as investments from local parties and EON Reality with the goal of training local students to create AR and VR content and applications.
The Center’s goal is to train 300 students directly through the VRIA and reach another 3,000 through Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality training and education applications. This will be accomplished by training VRIA students on the latest in AVR development techniques and EON Reality’s AVR Platform as well as developing applications for use by local industries and academic institutions. Utilizing the AVR Platform’s Learn, Train, Perform process students can be quickly educated, trained, and assisted in preparation to join the workforce of the future.
With an emphasis on educational and health applications, the students will create AVR content to assist in upskilling the citizens of the Dominican Republic and improving the quality of healthcare that is available in the country. These efforts, together with establishing a local AVR ecosystem, will contribute to the creation of high-paying, and high-skilled jobs in the Caribbean.
“Opening up the VR Innovation Academy in the Dominican Republic is a huge step forward both for EON Reality as well as the local economy,” said EON Reality Founder Dan Lejerskar. “Using the tools we’ll be providing to the area’s workers, we hope to see the quality of life increase not only in the Academy’s immediate surroundings but also across the country and even throughout the Caribbean. I think it’s an exciting time for us and for everyone else involved.”
