Enhancing Immersive Learning and Research – Apply to Varjo's Academic Program

Apply to Varjo’s Academic Program to experience the most realistic immersive applications and unlock significant discounts and benefits on Varjo products.

Supporting Academic Communities Worldwide

This year, “back to school” doesn’t mean what it used to. The COVID-19 pandemic has closed university campuses around the world.

Since we at Varjo started our remote contactless demo program back in May, we have received hundreds of applications for our human-eye resolution VR/XR demo kits from all over the world. Universities and academic institutions have been particularly active applicants, recognizing the need to innovate around virtual and mixed reality learning solutions, as much of the world remains in lockdown.

As learning moves to virtual environments, we are eager to help academic institutions increase their innovation and productivity with immersive 3D solutions. Today, we are launching a special program for universities, research institutions and education professionals.
