72 hour global hackathon

This initiative is presented by the University of Oxford’s X-Reality Hub (OXR). It aims to spark multidisciplinary collaborations on a global scale and develop solutions which leverage immersive technologies. The event, which is modeled upon programming hackathons, tasks participants with devising solutions to challenges which were created or amplified by the pandemic in the areas of cultural heritage, medicine, education and environmental sustainability.
