MIC Vlaanderen, locatie Genk organiseert:

 

Gaming is veel meer dan een aangenaam tijdverdrijf voor jongeren die uren spenderen achter televisieschermen en spelconsoles. Gaming bevat technieken en technologieën die heel wat toegevoegde waarde kunnen leveren aan bedrijfs- of organisatietoepassingen, ook in de zorgsector!
Daarom nodigen we u uit voor: “Serious Games, Serious Business”!

Op deze inspirerende namiddag maakt u kennis met:
o toepassingen die gaming en gametechnieken bieden aan de zorgsector
o opportuniteiten en uitdagingen in de nationale en internationale Serious Games markt
o ideeën van alle aanwezige sprekers tijdens een open discussie over ondernemen en Serious Games
o experten en ondernemers uit de Nederlandse en Belgische gaming industrie
