Welcome to Futuristic Jam, where you create a breaking game learning about technologies to come and dreaming about the future they could bring!
PREFET is a project funded by the European Commission to detect and understand seed technological trends that could have a strong impact in the future, over society (where, how and for how long will we live, how will we work, who will we become to be, how will we organise and interact, how will we defend the environment and life…), products and services (private and also public).
For months, we have been studying and selecting trends with the participation of thousands of researchers from all over the world, artists, designers and policy-makers.
For some other months, we are working with researchers from different fields in generating ideas around these trends for specific technology development projects.
This jam challenges you to create the most breaking / inspired game you can think of around one of these ideas.

Co-working with future-oriented researchers.
Lots of fun playing the crystal ball for humanity. You could also end up impacting the research to come; maybe even taking part in it somehow!
Feedback from other participants and jury members.
CO-WORKING WITH RESEARCHERS
Tech projects (ideas or trends) will be presented to participants in the jam on the 30th of October 2020 at 15:30 CET. Participants will choose what to work into, and will be put in contact with one of the researchers working on this project, so that h/she can answer questions or explain more details about the project if needed. Link for the presentation of themes: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/123332629763157518
During the jam, you will be able to contact this researcher in case you have any question or would like to receive feedback. On his/her side, they will want to see the game at least once before it is submitted.
For any further questions write to email@example.com
After the submission period, two things will happen:
It will be this voting the one deciding about the 1st, 2nd and 3rd economic prizes. Jury members will be made public before the jam, and will be formed by experts in the technologies tackled. They will vote right after submission on Sunday 01/11/2020, and the winners will be announced during the afternoon.
This voting period will run for 1 week. The result of this voting will be communicated to the researchers involved and jury members, and the top 5 participants in number of votes will be announced in the project’s website to the international community around future and emerging technologies. And don't forget to leave feedback on any game you rate, it is more helpful than just a number!
