SIRT hosts UK delegation visit to explore research collaboration
Jointly coordinated by the Government of Ontario's Ministry of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade (MEDJCT), Innovate UK and Invest Durham, the delegates were given an opportunity to learn more about Canada’s innovation ecosystem, specifically the immersive technology sector in which SIRT excels as a leader. In addition, the visit provided a platform to explore further opportunities for research collaboration between Canada and the UK’s extended reality (XR) technologies sector.
During the visit, delegates participated in a tour of the SIRT soundstage, learning about the Centre’s expertise within the screen industries and the application of industry-leading technologies within their research projects.
An integral part of Generator at Sheridan, SIRT drives creative and technological advances within the screen industries (film, television, interactive digital media including gaming and virtual/augmented reality) and innovative application of screen-industry technologies within the performing arts and other sectors.
