Prof Dr Fridolin Wild
Full professor AR/VR, The Open University
Fridolin Wild is professor at the Institute of Educational Technology of The Open University, leading the Performance Augmentation Lab (PAL). Fridolin seeks to close the dissociative gap between abstract knowledge and its practical application, researching radically new forms of linking directly from knowing something 'in principle' to applying that knowledge 'in practice' and speeding its refinement and integration into polished performance. Fridolin is and has been leading numerous research projects funded by the EU, European Space Agency, and nationally. He chairs various professional and standards working groups in IEEE, ISO, BSI, CEN, EA-TEL. Before, he was at Oxford Brookes University, the Knowledge Media Institute of the OU, and the Vienna University of Economics and Business in Austria. He studied at the University of Regensburg, Germany.
