The Rotterdam Serious Games Summit (RSGS) is a premier event that aims to energize and unite the Dutch and European Serious Games networks and beyond. Organized by INSPIR8ION, a company dedicated to bridging people, organizations, and emerging technologies across traditional government and business boundaries, RSGS is more than just a conference — it's a celebration of the transformative power of Serious Games. 

We aim to revolutionize various sectors through Serious Games, including education, health, mobility, defense, corporate training and development, urban planning, and more. We believe in the power of Serious Games as a dynamic tool for reskilling, upskilling and continuous learning, fostering problem-solving, critical thinking, and decision-making skills. This not only leads to positive transformations within organizations but also fuels progress in urban contexts, shaping the workforce of the future. 

What are some of the benefits of serious games?

Engaging learning experience: Serious games make learning experiences more interactive and enjoyable, which can increase motivation and engagement. This is particularly beneficial in educational settings where traditional teaching methods may not fully engage all learners.

Complex problem-solving: Simulation of complex systems or scenarios help players understand and navigate complex problems. This can be particularly useful in fields like urban planning or environmental science.

Accessibility and scalability: As digital platforms, serious games can be easily distributed and scaled, reaching a wide audience at a relatively low cost. They can also be accessed at the user's convenience, providing flexible learning opportunities.

Why attend?

The summit will bring together the best and brightest in the Dutch serious games sector to showcase the latest innovations and technologies. Beyond the national network — our platform embraces international guests at RSGS, providing an excellent opportunity to connect with like-minded European and international professionals.

 By attending RSGS, you will have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders, network with professionals, and stay abreast of trends and new developments in the field. Whether you're a game developer, educator, researcher, or simply passionate about the potential of serious games, this event is for you.

The Rotterdam roots of Serious Games: Learning by playing

Desiderius Erasmus, a renowned humanist and scholar of the Renaissance period born in Rotterdam, emphasized the value of learning through play. He believed that play and enjoyment were crucial elements in the educational process.
He believed that by incorporating elements of play, such as games, puzzles, and interactive activities, students could develop a deeper understanding and retain knowledge more effectively. This approach aimed to make education more enjoyable, meaningful, and impactful.

“People have the fundamental right to learn through play.”
