The Central Florida Tech Grove is launching a new collaborative “mixology” event that will mix thoughts, perspectives, and ideas from a wide range of respected subject matter experts. Our inaugural Mixology will tackle the question, “What is the Metaverse?”.   It seems like everyone is talking about it.   But who really knows what it is?!?   Those engaged in our world-class military modeling, simulation, and training industry know because they have been creating the metaverse for decades!  Come listen, ask and learn why Orlando is The Metacenter!


Join us at Tech Grove in-person or online on August 30, 1:30-2:30 to hear from DoD, Industry, and academic experts who bring very different perspectives to the discussions.

The Central Florida Tech Grove is a hub for accelerating collaboration and innovation in defense modeling, simulation, training, and human performance.  Tech Grove is located in the Central Florida Research Park in Orlando, Florida which is the epicenter of the nation's largest cluster of government, industry, academic, and industry organizations developing and delivering training and simulation products for our nation's military. Tech Grove was established in 2020 through a Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) between the Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) and the University of Central Florida Research Foundation.  Eight other Department of Defense entities are Tech Grove members: US Army Program Executive Office for Simulation Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI), US Air Force Agency for Modeling & Simulation (AFAMS), US Marine Corps Program Manager for Training Systems (PM TRASYS), US Army Simulation & Training Technology Center (STTC), US Army Futures Command Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team (STE CFT), Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL), Defense Health Agency (DHA), and the Office of Naval Research through the NavalX Central Florida Tech Bridge.
