While work on the GameBus project will officially start in January 2015, we are already making various preparations. The most important preparation is the recruiting of two new group members. One group member has been selected from the User System Interaction pool of PDEng trainees. This member will focus on the end user experience as well as on the business model aspects of GameBus. A second PDEng trainee was selected from the Software Technology pool. This member will focus on the integration of game components on the bus.
Besides PDEng projects, we have defined two master thesis projects on GameBus. One student will focus on GameBus business model aspects as part of a graduation in Innovation Management. A second student will focus on GameBus backend aspects as part of a graduation in Business Information Systems.
A GameBus kick-off meeting will be organized as a side activity of the EIT ICT Labs Health and Wellbeing End-of-Year Event 2014. In this way, we involve also our Italian partners in the preparations such that in January 2015 we can take a flying start!
