Companion Modelling, towards serious games in interdisciplinary research

It has been an intensive training week close to Avignon for Timothée Fouqueray. Mixing theoretical courses, practical exercises and the implementation of a serious game, this training gathered together PhD students, students, researchers and a few environmentalist practitioners around this interdisciplinary methodology. Companion modelling regards the study of renewable resource management thanks to agent-based models, in order to better understand processes of coordination or decision.
