Adams selected as consulting expert by ELVI project, Finland

Oulu, Finland

ELVI logoThe Environment for Lucrative Virtual Interaction is a regional development project coordinated by the University of Oulu Department of Information Processing Science, in conjunction with the European Union and the City of Oulu. The project's goal is to grow the area's games and interactive entertainment industry, by finding innovative ideas for games and interactive entertainment, and turning them into marketable concepts.

In order to do this, they need outside experts to help them evaluate the proposals. They put out a call for tenders -- bids, in effect -- to the game industry. I am honored to be among the bidders selected to serve as an expert. It means I'll be traveling to Oulu several times a year, evaluating game ideas and meeting with development teams.
