WP4 Objectives Build at EU level a rational and systematic corpus of: Knowledge Tools Practices Communication channels Sustainable community of stakeholders To support: Business exploitation Technology transfer

4 D4.2 Market and Value Chain Analysis 2

5 D4.2 Market and Value Chain Analysis
Methodology Starting point Hypothesis How to find data? Which criteria / indicators to use? Difficulties Big v. small company Estimated position along value chain Sector/s of operation Estimated % of dedication to SG development

6 D4.2 Market and Value Chain Analysis
The Serious Games Market How to make a market breakdown? Preliminary observations GaLA market sectors (2012) Education Corporate / Industry Healthcare Military / Gov ONG / Games for Good Advertising / Media Geographical segmentation seems not particularly relevant ‘Education’ sector seems to be by far the most addressed, followed by ‘Corporate’ ‘Specialisation‘ seems to be a characteristic of Corporate, Games for Good and Healthcare Overlap of ‘Advertising’ with ‘Corporate’ (same type of customers)

21 D4.19 Stakeholders community building

22 D4.19 Stakeholders community building
Stakeholders participation in GALA communities GALA communities facilities Strategies to foster community building Contents strategy- Serious Game Society membership Community governance Next steps

23 Stakeholders participation in GALA
There are not 4 (or 5) GALA communities but rather one GALA community that comprises a number of different sub-groups or sub-communities. Serious Games Society will ensure the sustainability of GALA efforts. Serious Game Society WP3 - Analysis Domain WP4 – Industry Games Creators WP5 Academy WP6 Academy Professors WP7 Industry Games Users Stakeholders Industry SG developers SG Users Academy Learners Teachers/ Researchers Policy makers WP1 Strategic Coordination WP8 Living labs, Tools and services WP9 Dissemination WP2- Technological Topics

24 GALA Online communities
Facilities to offer: Access management: Single sign-on for all services/facilities Easy and direct access to all facilities independently of entry point Different users profiles (Clear and partial separation between buyers and sellers – curated joining) Access facility to latest (scientific) papers/reports about SG Access and integration with other communities/social networking websites related to SG inside or outside GaLA (Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, specialist academic networks: List included in Section 5.4, D4.19) Management of sections News/Events/Blogging of the Serious Games Academy Serious Games Knowledge Management System (Catalogue) Serious Games Job market section Directory of SG Companies (under feasibility assessment) SIGS dedicated and public spaces in GALA website Instruments to verify motivation achievement: Statistics of visitors/contents visualization/ functionality access, Satisfaction surveys, Network Analysis tools

25 Strategies to foster community building
If we want to attract and keep new users involved, they should find a great online space containing: great overview (mission, vision, objectives, how to get involved) great contents (papers, links to Serious Games and demos, SG catalogue, CVs, job opportunities, directory of SG companies) great opportunities to contribute (easy forms to upload information, repositories). Overview strategy: Clear statements about mission, vision, how to get involved in SGS, the SG Academy, and the GaLA website (work in progress). Content strategy Dissemination strategy ( in close collaboration with WP9)

26 Strategies to foster community building
Contents strategy: Heavy contributions (within GALA consortium): Start with a contact list of people that are experts and passionate about serious games -really collaborative people with time allocated for this task within the GaLA consortium Join a group of at least people (1 or 2 per partner) with at least 4 monthly contributions. These contributions must belong to at least 4 different categories that can be chosen from the following: blog entries, uploading CV, create a job opportunity, create an entry of a serious game, create an entry of a SG enterprise, upload a paper to a repository 10 selected contributors will do at least 4 weekly contributions This calendar of contributions should continue at least until the end of the project (2+ years). A moderator (the Community Manager) will check that the contribution is progressing as accorded. Intermittent contribution motivation ( Serious Games Society members): Promote your brand in the SG community Showcase your organization’s products and activities in the SG community Be visible and active in the SG think tanks as an organization Get scale discounts for the SGS publications, events and services In addition to proposed membership benefits provide additional advantages to contributors: A year free membership Earning points of free days/months of SGS membership when participant upload contributions to more than one of the content categories

27 Strategies to foster community building
Dissemination strategy: The community should not be promoted until it has interesting contents. It is vital to ensure that visitors want to return! Assign a country representative for the Community. Community will work in English, translations are not needed, but a representative in each country will be crucial for national dissemination actions DE –BIBA NL –Delft FR –ORT IT –Genoa UK –Coventry ES –ATOS PO –INESC-ID Redesign or adapt the pack of advantages already done for SGS for each target group ( e.g.the alternative of earning free membership time from “contributor points”). Consider the most updated list of events in WP9 to be attended taking special care in reaching all target stakeholders groups. Prepare dissemination materials with references to the community (other networks, multichannel awareness, word of mouth, interviews, presentations in relevant events, blogs, podcasts, videos) Promote the community

28 Community governance Community Manager Board Education (UDELFT)
Project Manager (UNIGE) Education (UDELFT) Industry Users (UNOTT) SG Industry (ATOS) Dissemination Manager (OUNL) Domain Analysis (CNR) Technical Manager (UNIGE) Community Manager (ATOS) Community Manager Board

29 Community building: Next steps
The Governance structure will work in Y3 to carry out actions according presented strategies to: achieve quality content contributions increase number of participants 30 partners (2 individual – invite 10 stakeholders) -> 600 stakeholders by Y3 encourage to foster stakeholder participation and motivation

30 WP4 metrics
