How to Join the Academic Partners Workplace Group


As part of the Aria Research Kit (ARK), you'll get access to the Project Aria Academic Partner Announcements Feedback and Support Workplace Group. This group is Project Aria's academic research community space where researchers and engineers at Meta and Academic partners can connect, ask questions, share ideas and provide support.

In addition to being the place where we make announcements, we want to support researchers to:

  • Provide feedback about their Aria experiences
  • Participate in general discussions about Aria
  • Ask our community of researchers and engineers questions (support related or exploring an idea)
  • Engage with other academic researchers and perhaps even set challenges for each other

Once you've joined this group you can post support queries in the group or directly message our user support team.

This group is specifically for Academic Research Partners who are working with Aria devices.
