The Research Council of Norway has granted NOK 2 million over four years to the JoinGame network. Alf Inge Wang, from our department, is the project leader of the JoinGame network. The grant from the Research Council of Norway has been given through the VERDIKT-program.
A four year grant gives JoinGame a long time perspective for its work, and Alf Inge looks forward to what the future might bring. JoinGame was created in 2007, and currently has members from more than 170 different institutions (both industry and academia), which work with computer games in Norway.
Alf Inge says that computer games is an industry for the future, with great potential for growth. The primary goal of JoinGame is to provide a meeting place where the growing number of small, enthusiastic companies can share ideas, research and trends.
