MiTale project offers an opportunity to create a new business branch to the intersection of the game industry, especially serious games industry, well-being and healthcare industry. The combination of applied research results of gamification in the healthcare sector leads to innovative product offerings and new, practical guidance and research information for Finnish serious games professionals’ utilization to a wider target group.

The developed commercialization plans will be tested during the project development. This business ecosystem between industrial partners that is built during the project development will ensure immediate sustainability of the project results.
