Why GEMH?

We are generously funded by the European Research Council (ERC) and the Dutch Science Foundation (NWO), with additional funding and resources from the Behavioural Science Institute at Radboud University as well as several mental health agencies across the Netherlands. Our partners include developmental psychologists, neuroscientists, veteran game developers programmers, and artists whose objective is to harness the power of play to create games that make children's and families' lives happier, healthier, and more interconnected. Together with stakeholders, including teachers, clinicians, parents and children themselves, we co-design game experiences based on empirically validated principles of behavioural and emotional change.

About the funder

The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research supports a strong system of sciences in the Netherlands by encouraging quality and innovation in science.
