The Future of Work Virtual Reality Lab (FoW VR Lab) at the University of Zurich (UZH) will be dedicated to exploring whether and how Virtual Reality (VR) technologies can be used to improve the world of work for people.
It will do so by (i) promoting research on the use of VR for work, (ii) enabling new approaches to conducting research with VR across disciplines (iii) testing the potential of VR as a learning tool across disciplines, and (iv) offering new, more immersive opportunities for people to meet, engage, and learn with each other through VR.
In doing so, it will serve the DSI community Work, advance research at UZH’s Center for Leadership in the Future of Work, and bring together the scholars who are interested in the Future of Work around the world. The Lab will invite broad academic participation and collaboration with practitioners across different sectors and industries and will contribute to the HR Valley, a growing ecosystem focused on preparing people and organization’s for the future of work.
