About Us

We believe Virtual Reality is changing the world.


MASSIVE (acronym for Multimodal Acknowledgeable multiSenSory Immersive Virtual Environments) is a laboratory devoted to the multidisciplinary study of the relationship between virtual reality technologies and the different dimensions of human performance.

Our mission is to make use of virtual reality technology to enhance human abilities in order to address global challenges and improve quality of life.

We will achieve this goal by contributing to scientific advances in the field and having an active participation in the community, always with an ambition to innovate based on the ethical principles that guide research and life in general.

Also, we can help!

Do you need scientific research in order to develop your project or validate your products? 

We offer high-quality services that include Experimental Design, Experimental Studies and Result Analysis.


Reference Laboratory
