The center will be located at the Mohammed VI Polytechnic University campus in Ben Guerir, a town one hour north of Marrakech. It will include a showroom, a development lab, and a research and development hub.

On May 10, at a launch ceremony at the Sofitel in Rabat, EON Reality signed a memorandum of understanding with USAID, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University, the Agency for Digital Development, Mohammed V University of Rabat, the Moroccan Ministry of Industry, Investment, Trade and Digital Economy, and the Moroccan Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research.

The center will train teachers and develop curricula in AVR, in fields such as aerospace and agronomy, as well as set up the world’s largest library of AVR material. It will train up to 100 students per year in AVR skills, and develop a 3D classroom model to benefit over 5000 students. It will also upskill workers in targeted industries. The project aims to increase the employability of Moroccan youth, and build entrepreneurship.
