Abbreviation: GATE

Start date: September 1, 2006

End date: September 1, 2011

Project Description:

GATE Ambition

The ambition of the GATE project is to develop on the basis of organized collaboration, an international competitive knowledge base with respect to game technology, as well as the development of talent to enhance the productivity and competitive edge of small and medium-sized creative industrial companies. Applications of game technology will result in higher quality of education and healthcare, and, through improved decision making processes and training strategies, to improved safety. The project will substantially improve the competitiveness of companies producing (tools for) games and simulations by providing direct access to new technology and by technology transfer projects. This will lead to larger companies, encourage the founding of new companies, and attract companies from other companies to the Netherlands. The project will make people aware of the possibilities of gaming in public sectors such as education, health, and safety by performing pilots in these areas. As a result gaming and simulation will become more commonly applies in these sectors, leading to quality improvements and cost reductions.

GATE Mission

The mission of the GATE project is threefold:
  1. to substantially advance the state-of-the-art in gaming, simulation en virtual reality for the purpose of create highly effective entertainment products and experience learning systems.
  2. to facilitate effective knowledge transfer to companies developing (tools for) games and simulations
  3. to show the potential of gaming and simulation in the public sectors education, healthcare, and safety.
