The Games for Health Europe Conference is the annual two days global conference where professionals in “care and cure”, scientists, game designers, pharma, technicians and business developers come together to learn from each other’s, to share experiences, to see and create cutting edge opportunities for applied games. Take for example games to stimulate self-management skills for patients, to support patients to deal with chronic disease or to train medical professionals at particular skills like for laparoscopy or robotic surgery.
The call for transformation in healthcare is getting louder. Patients, medical professionals and other committed stakeholders want to shift the focus from fighting sickness to restoring and promoting happiness and wellbeing. A fundamental change of attitude and systemic structures is required. Are we able to realise this transformation and how? Will serious games be the transformers?
“The enthusiasm and innovation of the participants and audience is quite different from any other ‘tech’conference I have attended and it really feels like somewhere where things are made, business is done, and a family of global enthusiasts get together to talk openly about how to move games for health forward.”
“I enjoyed our session and the rest of the Games for Health Europe conference very much because of the important, clinically relevant topics covered and the mixed, enthusiastic audience.”
“The whole event was delighted with real scientific vanguard contents. I enjoyed and was honored to be part of our panel, also so excellently chaired.”
“One of the reasons I enjoy Games for Health Europe so much is the sense of positivity and collaborative effort. As well as the game makers, financiers and commentators, there will also be clinicians, patient representatives and politicians.”
