Through its actions and positioning, France Immersive Learning aims to: support the structuring of an industry and thus contribute to the objective of French digital sovereignty; promote the pedagogical virtues of immersive technologies in the fields of education, training, culture and heritage preservation and demystify immersive technologies, with the aim of making them attractive and accessible to as many people as possible.
