The training will include local public funds, specific support instruments implemented by the European Union within its programs (Creative Europe or Horizon Europe), crowdfunding platforms, special opportunities specific to the gaming industry, cooperation with publishers or, for example, participation in EPIC MegaGrants program
Interested participants (company representatives, individuals and professionals) will be able to apply for individual thematic modules, or to follow the program as a whole.
The regular price per module is 50 euros, according to Netokracija.
