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 Game Research.
Week of the Game
The Center for Game Research organises yearly the "Week of the Game". See the annual series.
