Crisis & Resilience: XR to the rescue!

Session

LucidWeb has been focused on democratising XR content editing and distribution since 2017.
LucidWeb is considered as a thought & technology leader in the WebXR space. Prior to Covid19, the Brussels-based startup was mostly focusing on bringing unique stories in journalism, cinema or travel to larger audiences working with Fortune500 brands like Netapp and broadcasters as ARTE and VRT. Since March ’20 the company has seen a spike in requests for fully web-based products as digital twins and remote training. Founder & CEO Leen Segers will showcase an XR training developed in partnership with the French hospital CHU Nantes.
