Project Details


The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science has awarded Roskilde University (RUC) a DKK 20 million extraordinary grant for the project: Virtual Learning Technologies in Science Education. The project is aiming at broad integration of virtual learning technologie (VLT) in science education and with a specific focus on researching the benefits of simulations and Virtual Reality (VR). With the grant, RUC is implementing, developing and researching VR- and 3D-simulations at the Bachelor in Natural Sciences programme within a timeframe expanding from 2018 to 2021.
Virtual Learning Technologies in Science Education is serving as both a Technology Pact (in Danish: Teknologipagten) project and ambassador. The Technology Pact ambition it to strengthen the interest and competences in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) in the Danish society.
