Target group Representatives of final user categories, final users, vocational and training centres, coaches, tutors, policy makers, research institutions
Result The framework for European wide sport contributes to the project objectives by providing the information required for development of the serious sports game. The framework for a European wide sport also provides a working version of the game framework – demonstrating how the framework can be used for a European sport.
Area of application
For project partners, the framework for a European wide sport outlines the information required to develop a version of the game, including the training activities, the tactics and strategies, the attributes which can be trained, the mechanics of the match, etc.
For stakeholders such as trainers or coaches, the framework for a European wide sport will demonstrate how the framework may be populated with relevant sports information. For GBL experts (and coaches/ trainers), the framework demonstrates how relevant sport information is transferred and how the learning/ transfer for a relevant sport occurs. Finally, for future game developers, or interested parties, the framework will demonstrate how similar games may be developed with information for a different sport in the future.
