In 2021, Breda University of Applied Sciences – 7,000 students in
the domains of Hotel Management, Facility Management, Games,
Media, Logistics, Built Environment, Leisure & Events, and Tourism –
discussed the impact of the emerging developments of immersive
technologies (VR, AR, AI, Digital Twins) within the sectoral industries.
This project, DigiReal – Digital Realities (DR) for Smart Industries
- aimed to look beyond the diversity and variety of individual
use cases to develop valuable concepts and innovations in
methodologies and lab infrastructure, discussing questions:

how do we create, use and experience DR sensibly,
meaningfully, and responsibly?

This report contains a coherent summary of the project with a 
lot of (domain) examples and technological developments. As a 
result, this report contains a BUas-wide research agenda on Digital 
Realities with a framework of overall, generic research questions, 
methodologies and ecosystems. 
This research has been financed by Regieorgaan SIA, part of the 
Dutch National Funding Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO)
