The Need:

The Serious Games Network (SEGAN) project looks to systematize the European approach to Serious Games, combining theory, research and practice in a way that promotes Europe as the leader in this field. This network methodology is mostly based on the design and development of the tools that support the Community of Practice and seek to develop it into a full grown European Association.

The Solution:

The Serious Games Network project has developed a Community of Practice on the Serious Games subject. The main objective is to create a stable (but expanding) consortium to exchange ideas and experiences related to Serious Games. This network is supported by virtual tools and face to face events, in order to increase the visibility and awareness of the benefits and impacts of Serious Games for learning, and contribute to its uptake and efficient use.
