Interactive Technologies and Games Conference
There are a few projects that we fund that use games to interact with their audience. One of those projects, PAUSE, a Leonardo Transfer of Innovation will be disseminating their experiences at this conference. Bringing together academics and practitioners who work with interactive technologies in the areas of Education, Health and Disability this conference is the chance to showcase practice and start to mainstream research ideas and outcomes.
