EU-funded MED GAIMS: webinar on grant opportunities to gamify tourism in Lebanon
September 2, 2020
Registration is now open for the webinar on “Gamification in Tourism: Opportunities in Lebanon” organised by the EU-funded MED GAIMS project and scheduled on 11 September.
The webinar will introduce the project and future opportunities in Lebanon for 5 funded grants for game development. Grant size is between 10,000-15,000 euro per game. Attendees will get insights on the tourism sites, gamification ideas, as well as information about Hackathons & Creative Labs.
The webinar is intended for entrepreneurs, game designers, game developers and game experience designers.
The MED GAIMS is an EU funded (€2.3 million) project under the ENI CBC Med Programme for cross-border cooperation in the Mediterranean area. It aims to revamp tourism in the region by shifting the paradigm of tourism to an active interaction rather than a passive one. This will be achieved via employing experience design through the context of gamification. Game mechanics will be utilized to highlight a novel story telling approach in tourism. This will expand to an experience that will not only serve to enhance the tourism experience, but also to increase the influx of tourists to less known sites. This project is gearing up to be a grass roots movement that engages the local community to become developers rather than users of the project outcome.
