Games and Innovation in GameHub
Yesterday I attended Gamehub, a Belgian initiative to act as an incubator for the Gameindustry and talent in Belgium. It is a 2 year project with the cooperation of Higher Education and University (Provinciale Hogeschool Limburg (PHL), Universiteit Hasselt, Katholieke Hogeschool Limburg and GROEP T Internationale Hogeschool Leuven) as well as European and National funds. They tried to bring together business and talent as well as Belgium game studio’s. Although the turn-up of business related attendees was not too big, it was a very interesting day with regard to showcasing fruitful and innovative projects that flourish in the tiny country of Belgium. Good to see the cooperation of governments and Educators in this long-term project investing in their knowledge economy trying to keep talent and creativity on board. For a quick overview of the speakers and their presentations you can see my sketchnotes here. The afternoon was packed with hands-on in depth workshops, from stopmotion animation to game based learning. Thanks for having me guys.
