Despite the generally difficult times in economy, the game industry continues as the area of growth. Also in Jyväskylä, we have an active, productive, and willing-to-grow game industry and community, education up to university-level in games technology, and interdisciplinary researchers and developers working in the field. This work is presented and facilitated through this open and free seminar.

BeatMuse, Agora Center, and the Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (Ely-keskus) co-organize a joint seminar on game internationalization and cross-markets on Thursday, December 18, 2014. The seminar is intended for companies, students, and researchers interested in game development and game business.
