About us

"Images have a huge influence on our brains and therefore strongly influence our feelings and also thinking patterns."

CleVR B.V, founded in 2010, originated from the previous (research) collaboration between TU Delft (Department Interactive Intelligence) and the UvA (Department of Clinical Psychology). CleVR is located in the 'incubator' of YES!Delft, one of the most innovative 'tech hubs' in Europe

What can CleVR mean for the healthcare sector in particular? Innovation in healthcare. The strength of CleVR therefore lies in being able to make the right translation between psychology and dynamic interactive Virtual Reality technology. In direct co-creation with researchers from various Dutch universities, forensic clinics and mental health care institutions, we contribute to the mental health care of tomorrow.

In addition, CleVR is also active in the training sector, where VR solutions are applied in resilience, aggression, and psychopathology training. All this with the aim of an effective behavioural change, so professionals are better prepared for difficult situations in the workplace.

CleVR is not a gaming company. No 'fun' with us, but a clear focus to do research together with our partners into the influence of dynamic interactive virtual images on our brain and its influence on our feelings and thinking patterns.

The aim is, together with our partners, to develop treatment and training methods, known as Virtual Reality Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (VR-CBT), that lead to higher effectiveness and efficiency. Practically, for example, that this shortens the duration of treatments, decreases the use of medicines and clients can continue to participate (more) independently in our society. We expect that a better treatment effect will encourage patients to consume less care, thereby achieving greater efficiency and cost reduction. Or practically that there is a lower percentage of dropouts on the work floor.

In short, CleVR has a special proposition. Special, because it concerns a unique proposition, and unique because it involves collaboration within scientific consortia, mental healthcare institutions, forensic clinics and various government institutions with a clear focus on innovation.
