The 16th of October I will be participating in a workshop on the future of EU game development, in Sevilla Spain. “Workshop on Software games technological and market potential how can EU compete now and in the future.”

The workshop aims at discussing the potential of software games industry, in order to better identify those segments suitable to play a disruptive role in the short term future, both with regard to the market and to the technological impacts. It is also meant to assess strengths and weaknesses of EU firms in the industry, and to highlight drivers for a possible future EU leadership. Representatives of academia, research institutions and European companies will be involved.
