The First University of St. Gallen Grand Challenge: The EU A.I. Act 2023

On July 18th-19th, 2023, SQUARE will host the Final of the First University of St. Gallen Grand Challenge, focusing on assessing cutting-edge A.I. technology in light of the upcoming EU A.I. Act. Six teams of professionals will compete for a prize of 100,000 CHF, awarded by a jury. The EU A.I. Act categorizes A.I. according to risk, and the Grand Challenge will reveal how this new legislation can be implemented on specific technology. The public can attend to witness the competition, and some A.I. technology will be on display. Participation is open, and potential teams should register for an online informational event on March 2, 2023.

Introduction to “Serious Gaming” & Game Design Workshop

Serious gaming is an effective way to apply theoretical knowledge, and game design can help university faculty create interactive and engaging learning exercises for students, both online and offline. Research has shown that academic courses that include serious games score higher on metrics such as student satisfaction and engagement.

Join SQUARE for a one-day workshop, where two experts in serious game design, Tim Goudriaan and Diederik Stolk, will guide you through the process of building a scenario-based game in the areas of geo-politics, business, economics, and security. This workshop is exclusively for faculty and lecturers at the University of St.Gallen, and prior registration is necessary.

To further prepare, we highly recommend participating in the "St.Gallen Strategy Days", a large-scale two-day serious gaming exercise held on June 1st and 2nd.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn and engage with serious game design! The workshop will be conducted in English.
