Spationomy 2.0 Final Conference

10 November 2022, Olomouc

BEA Centre Olomouc (tř. Kosmonautů 1288, 779 00 Olomouc – map)

This Final Conference represents the “grand finale” and closure of the Spationomy 2.0. The conference brings together both students and scholars interested in the spatial and economic science in higher education in the context of playful methodologies (simulation game), but not only them. The conference is opened to a wider  audience (including local community) with an objective to share project outcomes more widely with interested stakeholders. The conference will reflect lessons learnt and best practices from the project as a whole, will present project outcomes and will host keynotes from a wider professional network. The conference programme is designed to create an open-discussion environment complemented with practical demonstrations of the project activities (through the GameCon workshops).

There is NO conference fee, only fun required…
