Metaverse Research Group

Metaverse Research Group is currently in its incubation phase at Technical University of Munich (TUM) School of Social Sciences and Technology. It is a joint initiative of the Professorship of Public Policy, Governance and Innovative Technologies with the TUM Think Tank and their international partners, including the Nordic Center for Internet and Society at BI Norwegian Business School and Youth and Media at the University of Zurich.

The Metaverse Research Group aims to investigate and shape the interactions of immersive technologies and their applications with society, politics, and the economy in the coming years. Its activities include a bi-weekly Reading Group, which studies a variety of use cases (e.g., smart cities, teaching and learning, or cultural heritage) and governance issues (e.g., app store issues, privacy, or interoperability).
