Game In Lab
supporting game research
Game in Lab's mission is to contribute to the recognition and visibility of analog games.
Our objective is threefold:
Our vision of board and analog games is broad, leading to the exploration of video-game interfaces, life-size role-playing games, escape games and many more.
We aim to support bodies of work of international and interdisciplinary importance.
Our mission includes the financing of research projects, scientific dissemination, and events organization or support.
Scientific actions are carried out under the supervision of the Scientific Committee, which defines the thematic axes and endorses the scientific and ethical direction of the program.
Annual call for projects
Each year, Game in Lab offers financial support to scientific research projects in relation to priority investigation themes. This call for projects aligns with its objective of developing board game research, scientific popularization, and collaborations between researchers and practitioners.
We financially support short research projects (6 to 12 months) or create connections between actors in this ecosystem.
Special attention is given to the development of young researchers, to encourage them to participate in international conferences or publish their work.
Supported teams and researchers are encouraged to share their work during events organized by Game in Lab and to participate in scientific dissemination and popularization actions.
The Scientific Committee ensures the scientific and ethical direction of the program, and the selection of the annual call for projects.
