This month heralds the launch of a new project in collaboration with the University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. For the next two years, medical engineers and computer scientists from the research campus STIMULATE will cooperate with scientists, gamification designers and game user researchers of the Games Institute at University of Waterloo on innovative input and output concepts for medical devices.

The project was initiated by Prof. Dr. Lennart Nacke (University of Waterloo), Prof. Dr. Bernhard Preim (Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg) and Jun.-Prof. Dr. Christian Hansen (Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg). The scientific exchange between students, PhD students and professors of both institutions shall be supported by workshops and research stays. The project proposal is funded with a total of €33.200 from the International Research Program Grant (IRPG) of the University of Waterloo and the European Union.
