Far South West Immersive

i-DAT is contributing the development of Far South West Immersive.


“The creative application of immersive technologies will change lives

We are an alliance of innovators, bringing together three renowned Universities – Plymouth, Falmouth and Exeter – together with the social enterprise, Real Ideas to collaborate with partners across our region with transformative effect.

We harness new technologies and combine them with all the creativity and expertise our region has to offer, in order to tackle pressing real-world issues through powerful immersive experiences.

The South West of England is home to many rural and coastal communities, with a heritage of discovery and enterprise. It’s inspired a population of thinkers – creatives, technologists and problem-solvers.

It’s our priority to find immediate solutions for the good of our communities, that can inspire and transform similar rural and coastal communities across the globe. We want to affect specific social challenges, such as health, housing, poverty and isolation through the power of immersive technologies.

We’ve already witnessed the physiological impact of targeted immersive media, leading to improved educational, health and societal outcomes.

As an ambitious alliance, we share a compelling sense of the practical potential of our cutting-edge technology, combined with fertile, cross-disciplinary thinking.

We invite you to join us as collaborators, as we lead a global advancement, through immersive technology, towards a better future.

Our mission is to make social good the focus of our innovative research and development in immersive technologies.
Together, we will harness the region’s creativity, heritage and landscapes to tackle pressing real-world issues.”
