We have been asked to present the RAGE project on 20 and 21 November at the European Parliament premises in Brussels. Together with 9 other projects, the RAGE project has been selected from hundreds of current research and innovation projects under the Horizon2020 Programme. In organising this event, the European Parliament draws attention to how multidisciplinary research contributes to solving societal challenges.

Serious games are playing an important role in many areas; this includes education and training, health care and ageing, inclusiveness, citizenship, innovation and the digital transformation. Research carried out in RAGE focuses on smart, reusable technologies for making serious games. This ensures that games are not only more advanced, but also makes their development more efficient and cheaper. With these new technologies, RAGE has also developed serious games (on entrepreneurship and social skills) and has run successful tests with 1,500 participants.

The RAGE project has already proved itself to be very successful. In 2017 RAGE was one of the finalists of the European Innovation Radar prize for promising “Early stage innovations”. This year the European Commission has already recognised the RAGE project as one of the “flagships” of Horizon2020.
