The goal of this project is to further develop and spread the Game Lab education and pre-incubator model which has been created in Oulu University of Applied Sciences, to Oulu Southern Region in Centria University of Applied Sciences in cooperation between Centria and Oamk. Like so the organizations want to enhance know-how in game industry and create more and better game industry companies and products to Northern Ostrobothnia.
