Female Students to Nordic Game 2015

In an effort to encourage and fortify the presence of women in the games industry we’ve received the opportunity to send female students from games educations in nordic countries to Nordic Game Conference 2015. The purpose being increased representation of women at industry events, and also to provide ample possibilities to grow their network, exchange ideas and ease the transition from student life into work life.

A total of 14 will be participating and students represent a number of Nordic institutions such as Helsinki Metropolia University of applied sciences, Viden Djurs, Denmark, Vallekilde University, Dania Games, GAME Uppsala University Campus Gotland, Skövde University, PlaygroundSquad, Future Games and the University of Tampere.

We hope to see many of you on the floor during the conference days and at our events!
