About EMIL

EMIL, the European Media and Immersion Lab, is an Innovation Action co-funded by the European Union and Innovate UK. It is funded under Call “HORIZON-CL4-2021-HUMAN-01-06: Innovation for Media, including eXtended Reality – Part ii”.

EMIL is a consortium of four partners: It is being coordinated by Aalto University in Finland and includes Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in Germany, Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Spain and University of Bath in England.
EMIL establishes both a physical and a virtual infrastructure for a pan-European laboratory that accelerates the development of virtual, augmented and mixed reality technologies, content, services and applications.

To achieve this, the consortium was provided with a total budget of 5.6M EUR in funding to be distributed to Europe’s most innovative XR projects as financial support to third parties (FSTP). All funded projects receive additional support through research excellence, technological and creative expertise and networks access from the partner institutions.
In addition to running the lab, all four partners demonstrate their latest scientific research in individual Lighthouse Projects, highlighting their fields of expertise in narrative media production, smart garments, animation, VFX, embodied interaction, digital cultural heritage, digital health, motion capture/analysis and technological XR development.

EMIL aims to extend its impact beyond the EU/UKRI funding in order to contribute to the growth of the European XR landscape.
