The game educations in Grenaa are the foundation on which Game Hub Denmark is based. And we encourage young people to kick off their career as game developers at a very young age at Game College where students follow a 3-year program at upper secondary level, specializing in either Game Tech, Game Art or E-sport. As part of the program, they have the possibility to develop their own games and bring them to the market through the college’s BizHub. More than 400 students from all over Denmark are currently enrolled at the college.
Young people looking to specialize in more practical, graphical skills have the opportunity to do so at 3D College Denmark, where they work with 3D animations for games as well as VFX graphics.
A number of these, as well as students with other backgrounds from all over Denmark, continue their education as game developers at Dania Games that offers two educations at higher level in Grenaa – specializing in Computer Science and Game Design, respectively. Students enrolled in one of these programs are encouraged to start their own production of games and their own game studio prior to graduating – and are trained in project management, team work and how to apply theory into practice throughout the 2-2,5 years they study at Dania Games. This entrepreneurial approach inspires a number of graduates to apply for an office in the Game Hub Denmark Incubator after graduation.
Through international collaboration in typically EU-funded development projects, Game Hub Denmark always strive to develop our local ecosystem, to expand our international network, and to work with the best game educations and incubators in order to reach our ultimate goal of creating new jobs and sustainable companies in the game sector. We have partners all over Europe – and also have a strong interest in building long-lasting relations with our contacts in China , the biggest game market in the world.
Our award winning Projects Department are very experienced in leading large EU projects – such as Scandinavian Game Developers (winner of the EU Regional Stars Award, 2015) and Game Hub Scandinavia (winner of the StartUp Europe Awards 2016). We are currently core partners in the Baltic Game Industry Project where we collaborate with game educations, business organizations and public authorities from all over the Baltic Sea region.
The Institute for Danish Game Development is part of the Dania Games, where computer scientists and multimedia designers are specializing in computer games. The purpose of the department is to serve business, media and society with analyses and expert knowledge gathered from the many skilled researchers in computer games and computer science in Denmark.
