Utrecht Center for Game Research

Games play an increasingly important role in many societal areas by allowing users to practice, play, experiment, research, and learn in a safe and motivating environment.

The Utrecht Center for Game Research performs interdisciplinary research on serious gaming and playful interaction with a focus on the following domains:

  • Games for Learning
  • Games for Health
  • Games for Change 

It is our mission to employ games to help solving large societal challenges. Games are pre-eminently suitable to inform, motivate, appeal to emotion, and influence behavior. Games do that better than other types of media. Learn more about our projects in our magazine
