Serious Game

A Serious Game about the heating sector and its transformation in a fictional town has been developed. Players take over one of the roles (district heating company, district manager, government) and follow their goals to win. The game was successfully played several times with HAWK and international students in August 2022. HAWK can offer free game workshops to universities, research institutions and companies, as well as to any other interested organisations
