"The new generation expects a new level of interactivity, and games offer just that. An innovative and exciting hands on experience which far surpass the dated methods of lectures and text books."

"This is a great opportunity to experience the wide variety of sectors where serious games have been used to great effect. It’s a must for anyone who is considering using serious games and computer-based
training for business or academic institute."

"By attending the day you will get a fully rounded experience on the use of games and simulations across a whole range of sectors, focusing on real examples with real impact."


Specific to the SERIOUS GAMES FOR HEALTH session:

"In this session we look at some of the leading examples on increasing physical activity, improving patient compliance, encouraging better
personal health, improving hospital operations, and providing more
engaging training to healthcare professionals. Topics include the

  • Experience the benefits of using simulations and serious games compared with standard e-learning.
  • Discover clinical trials that demonstrate significant positive benefit in use of games for patients.
  • Discuss and share ideas for more engaging approaches to patient and practitioner compliance.
  • Find how healthcare training can be made much more effective through the use of simulations and serious games.
  • See how gaming and virtual technologies can be harnessed to increase physical activity, encourage better personal health and improve
    hospital operations."

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
