XR Distributed Research Network (XRDRN) is a platform for researchers in the Cross-Reality (XR/VR/AR) discipline, created in response to the Covid-19 emergency lockdown. The aim is to provide a home for researchers to upload their current XR research projects and find participants for their research.

XR research often requires participants, but during the pandemic, the only way researchers can get participants is by distributing activities online. Many researchers have noted difficulty and effort in both publicising their projects and recruiting participants.

We hope researchers will upload their projects, and also share the website with their network and as part of their experiment recruitment process. In this way, participants can participate in multiple studies and the recruitment efforts for all researchers can be reduced.

The service is completely free to use for researchers and people who would like to participate in the studies.
