SeniorLudens: A PLATFORM FOR CREATING SERIOUS GAMES

The Biomedical Engineering Research Centre (CREB UPC) is participating, along with Indra, in a European project whose aim is to develop a serious games platform for occupational training. The platform will promote training and the retraining of professionals close to retirement, and will also foster intergenerational knowledge exchange. Senior employees themselves shall design serious games for training, to give continuity to their usual professional tasks so that younger employees can learn in an informal, ludic way. Project management in an IT firm, artisan cheese making, and the cognitive and functional rehabilitation of patients will be the three first areas in which the platform will be used.
