REVEAL project selected for EU Digital Assembly 2018 in Sofia

Dr Jake Habgood (Reader in Game Development at Sheffield Hallam University) and Professor Simon Andrews (Professor of Conceptual Structures in Computer Science at Sheffield Hallam University) are pleased to announce that their EU Project, REVEAL, has been selected by the European Commission to be showcased at the EU’s highly prestigious Digital Assembly 2018 event in Sofia this June.

It is an event co-organised by the European Commission and the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The Digital Assembly is an annual forum for stakeholders to debate, take stock and look ahead at how Europe and its partners around the world are preparing for the main digital policy challenges ahead. The Assembly will also present an opportunity for dialogue on how to reap the benefits of the best of current digital research for citizens and businesses in a rapidly changing world.

REVEAL is a Horizon 2020 research project that is pioneering the use of PlayStation®VR for innovative educational applications which engage world-wide audiences in Europe’s rich historical and scientific heritage. The project has already created its first PlayStation®VR title based on the home of Dr. Edward Jenner, the 18th century scientist credited with the discovery of vaccination. This will be released for the PlayStation 4 in Europe in time for the Digital Assembly event.
