EPTRI Webinar: Immersive Reality in Child Health

Thursday 26 October 2023

Earlier this year, European Paediatric Translational Research Infrastructure, EPTRI, announced the launch of the online educational programme developed within the Paediatric Medical Devices Research Platform.

This one year online educational programme is based around specific topics relating to child health technologies, such as regulation, compliance, commercialisation and funding.

The second webinar of the series will be held on 14th November 3:30pm – 5:00pm, and will focus on the fascinating realm of immersive reality in child health. During this event, the speakers will delve into the latest developments in empirical studies surrounding the utilization of immersive and non-immersive virtual reality among child populations, shedding light on current trends and paving the way for prospective research avenues.
