Meta to set up Metaverse Academy in France

Meta to set up Metaverse Academy in France

June 13, 2022

Meta, the holding company behind Facebook, has collaborated with a French digital training firm to launch a “metaverse academy” in France for the new academic year, according to an AFP report.

Seen as the internet’s next great technological development, the metaverse refers to an immersive digital world that aims to recreate real life via augmented or virtual reality and take the web from 2D to 3D.

The school’s goal in its first year will be to train for free around 100 students in two roles, specialist immersive technology developers and support and assistance technicians, Meta’s vice president for southern Europe Laurent Solly told AFP.

The teaching method will be in-person and revolve around projects, with a focus on the 3D world and interactions in the virtual universes, said Frederic Bardeau, co-founder and boss of Simplon, the French firm working with Meta.

Located in the capital Paris and other cities including Lyon, Marseille and Nice, the metaverse academy will train 20 students per city each year.

Particular attention will be paid to diversity. Solly said the target was for 30 per cent of the first cohort to be women, while Bardeau said he would not look at applicants’ CVs and endorse positive discrimination.
