Coventry University and EBN are proud to be partnering up on the webinar series dedicated to the transformative power of innovation through Simulation, Immersive and Experiential Technologies.

New technologies like artificial intelligence and virtual reality are having a big impact on the workforce and economy. There is a huge demand for skills in the design, delivery and day-to-day use of these solutions. The adoption of innovative technologies across industries, including retail, education, disaster management, mobility, healthcare, and manufacturing, has been driven primarily by disruptive business models brought by globalization and digitization. We see the developments of digital tools and new business models in every single industry pushing the borders of how, when, where and what can be experienced.


Extended Reality Solutions: The Future of Healthcare Simulation

This webinar will examine the approach the Faculty is taking to the enhancement of healthcare simulation with a focus on the use of technological advancements such as eXtended reality (XR), haptics, artificial intelligence, and 5G. It will explore proof-of-concept project collaborations with industries such as Vodafone, Gamoola, PCS, and HaptX and the lessons learned, whilst delving into our direction of focus for research and the vision for future healthcare simulation curriculum design and industry collaboration.

The Coventry University Faculty of Health and Life Sciences is home to one of the largest selections of forward-thinking vocational health and social care courses in the UK. Learning through exploring underpins everything our students do in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Coventry University. This approach has secured us a world-renowned reputation for developing exceptional, industry-ready graduates and successful leaders. With over 6000 students enrolled in our faculty, we are committed to this vision of learning through exploration, creating the next generation of health and science leaders.

For whom?

The joint webinar series will give the European startup, corporate, research, and innovation community an opportunity to get to know the world-class experts who will showcase their flagship projects, inspire industry collaborations, and share their exciting plans for the future.

About Coventry University

Coventry University is a global, modern university with a mission of Creating Better Futures. We were founded by entrepreneurs and industrialists in 1843 as the Coventry School of Design and we continue to have strong links with the public and private sectors, providing job-ready graduates with the skills and creative thinking to improve their communities.

With a proud tradition of innovative teaching and learning, Coventry University has world-class campus facilities, the UK’s first standalone 5G network and a digital community of learning. Our students are part of a global network with 50,000 learners studying for Coventry University degrees in more than 40 different countries and collaborating with 150 higher education providers worldwide.

In April 2022, we were honoured with the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of International Trade, the UK’s most prestigious business award. In recent years, we have won many awards and vastly improved our rankings in the league tables that matter to students – but what matters to us is delivering transformational change for our students, collaborators, and communities around the world as we continue to evolve into a global education group.

Cross-industry collaboration

Coventry University’s School of Arts and Design has a long tradition of making a distinctive contribution to global creative industries. Work is well underway on a redevelopment at Coventry University which will transform the teaching and student experience in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities (in areas such as e.g. Architecture, Automotive and Transport Design, Interior Design, Product Design, Graphic Design, Illustration and Animation, Fine Art, and Fashion). The new facilities will feature a hyper studio designed for cross-disciplinary projects and immersive studios with cutting-edge Virtual Reality and Mixed Reality technologies.
