Workshop | Tech Trends

SURF published the report Tech Trends 2023 earlier this year. Of course the changes in technology have a high pace. Join the workshop and let’s talk about trends that are relevant for education and research, and discover the alternative futures together!

Central theme during this futuring workshop is the "Metaverse": everyone is talking about this vast virtual universe, but what exactly does it entail? What can the Metaverse mean for education and research? The concept has a broad link to various technologies described in SURF's Tech Trends report. Think of: AI, XR, Internet of Things, Self Sovereign Identity...
Let's explore future possibilities together!
