2nd Thematic Seminar in Perugia, Italy

Five Thematic Seminars will be organised throughout the 3 years of the BOO-Games project delivery.

These seminars will address several topics that have been identified by the consortium as being key for the sector. Since the games industry is facing common issues all over Europe, the Thematic Seminar will be an opportunity to define common solutions and learn from each other.

The second seminar that will be held in Perugia on the 5th October 2012, will introduce the notion of cross sector activities and how the Video Games sector has been able to impact on other sector and in particular with the phenomenon of Serious Games.
