Games & Health, Serious Business

On Thursday 18 June, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Paris organises a bilateral French-Dutch seminar focusing on the role of serious gaming and simulations in the health sector. Our expert speakers will elaborate on the framework conditions in France and in the Netherlands regarding the use of serious games in healthcare, and will present the latest innovations in this field. Furthermore, several distinguished game developers will present and demonstrate their projects, showcasing their innovative solutions to complex medical problems. Registration and coffee will begin at 10.00h, the official programme will start at 10.30h.

The preliminary programme for the day can be found here.

During the day, two slots are reserved for pitches. Developers and organisations can present themselves or their products in front of the whole audience in a short 5 minute presentation. Furthermore, there will also be space for company stands. During the coffee breaks, lunch and closing drinks, there will be many possibilities to exchange ideas and thoughts.

For those visitors that are interested, the Embassy will also organise company visits in the Paris region, on Friday 19 June. The participants of these company visits are also invited to join the closing dinner on 18 June. We would like to ask you to indicate if you are interested in these company visits when registering for the event.
