The TARGET project is a research and innovation project implementing the Pan-European platform for serious gaming and training call funded under the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Commission. The project began in May 2015 and will run until April 2018. The mission of TARGET is to develop, trial and assess a comprehensive open distributed pan-European Platform for serious gaming leveraging state-of-the-art decision support tools, for the training and competence assessment of Security Critical Agents (SCA) including counterterrorism units, border guards and first responders (police, firefighters, ambulance services, civil security agencies or critical infrastructure operators). TARGET favours joint development of serious gaming Training Content (TC) and collaborative transnational training. TARGET will trigger the emergence of a marketplace for sharing, licensing and paying for serious TC between SCA, leveraging the existing European wealth of exercises.
