Development of Simulation Games for educational purposes.

Start date: 2006

End date: 2008

Research Program: FP7


The project built on interdisciplinary scientific/academic models and best/worst practices and experiences to identify the factors inhibiting effective collaboration (Collaboration Traps & Challenges), and the interventions required to reduce these risks (Collaboration Management Competencies). After integration, this know-how led to the development of:

  • An innovative framework (Advanced Collaboration Dynamics and Technologies - ACDT Framework) addressing the effective development of collaboration competencies.
  • A set of widely deployable, advanced, interactive and experiential technology-enhanced solutions (ACDT Simulation Games) guaranteeing the effective understanding and internalisation of (1) cognitive, motivational and attitudinal factors, (2) complexity of knowledge integration processes and distributed, ICT-supported teamwork, and (3) management competencies determining the success or failure of collaboration dynamics in diverse and distributed contexts.
