Research Meets Business

On Wednesday afternoon, February 10, the GATE project organizes, in collaboration with the DGA, the meeting Research Meets Business. The goal of this meeting is match-making between the researchers in the GATE project and developers in the Dutch game industry, to stimulate future collaboration. The GATE project has a budget of one million Euro for such new knowledge transfer projects.

During the meeting research results from the GATE project will be presented. Also some developers from game companies will give their views on the most important technical challenges for the future. During a long poster session with drinks, people can discuss the results and collaboration opportunities.
