On May 26th, JJU’s Immersive Contents Project Business Center announced that it opened “X-ValueUp Space” as a metaverse social living lab space for solving social problems.
This will be used as a place to carry out realistic media-based practical projects and convergence projects and support various PBL(Project Based Learning) education and start-up activities for students.
Despite the rainy weather, more than 70 people, including dean, faculty, and students of each college, including JJU President Park Jin-bae, Education Minister Hwang In-soo, Vice Foreign Minister Hong Sung-deok, and Graduate School President Jeon Yong-seok, participated in the opening ceremony.
The newly opened X-ValueUp Space consists of a total of five spaces, including two practice buildings, one craft experience room, one sound room, and one office, for the purpose of the realistic and immersive media innovation sharing university project. These spaces will be used as 24-hour open project and practice spaces for students, realistic and immersive content and prototyping and start-up spaces, space for research on sounds of regional specialization, and space for student counseling and operational support.
In the future, it plans to build the same-sized five rooms on the second floor and make them an experimental space for students and a project space specializing in immersive media. Furthermore, they will be shared not only by university members but also by local companies or institutions.
Han Dong-sung, head of JJU’s Immersive Contents Project Business Center, said, “We look forward to activities in this space that transform ideas into reality while preparing for the metaverse era by freely discussing, researching, and experimenting with them.” He also said, “I am confident that every student I meet in this space will grow as a talented individual suitable for this metaverse era.”
Meanwhile, JJU’s Immersive Contents Project Business Center was selected as the participating university of the Ministry of Education and received a total budget of 81.6 billion won for 6 years to foster professionals in the immersive media field along with Konkuk University, Kyung-Hee University, Keimyung University, Pai-Chai University, and Chung-Ang University.
