Serious games have become a popular tool for knowledge transfer, behavioural, perceptual or cognitive change. Confidence in behaviour changes through serious games, referred by its acronym eConfidence, is a project that aims to test and research whether and how the use of serious game can have an impact on positive behavioural changes.

eConfidence focuses on children, serious games and behavioural change. Two games will be developed and piloted in a school environment. The research results aim to increase the use of serious game in the classroom and reshape the ludic perception of games into a positive resource for young people, teachers, parents and carers. The project is coordinated by the Technological Institute of Castilla y León (ITCL) in collaboration with European Schoolnet, Everis, Nurogames, the University of Salamanca and the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Rijeka.
