SMILE&WORK, ‘SERIOUS GAMES’ TO INCREASE THE INTEGRATION OF PEOPLE WITH INTELLECTUAL DISABILITIES

Smile&Work, developed by the Computer Graphics division at the Biomedical Engineering Research Centre of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (CREB UPC), is one of three projects selected in the First Call for Proposals for Applied Research Projects to Develop Accessible Technologies, announced by Indra and the Fundació Universia in October 2016.

The objective of Smile&Work is to design and validate a series of "serious games" in which a person with an intellectual disability can train online in work protocols and in social and relationship skills, and can learn how to react in unexpected situations. The serious games provide personalised learning without the need for constant supervision.
