Bundeswehr Education and Training Convention 2024


Bundeswehr‘s largest convention for education and training will take place at Helmut Schmidt University/Bundeswehr University Hamburg covering “Game-based Learning and Serious Gaming for a strong Democracy – Opportunities and Limitations” from 3rd to 5th September 2024.

“There is something like democratic muscles that have to be trained regularly because otherwise they will turn slack and shrivel. We have to practice again and again our capability to hold sensible discussions with people having different opinions and our readiness to balance diverging interests.”

Frank-Walter Steinmeier, Federal President of the Federal Republic of Germany, December 2023

We are looking forward to discussing the following questions with you:

  • Where do we stand in the areas of Game-based Learning, Serious Gaming, Wargaming, Gamification and as regards the use of AI and Virtual and Augmented Reality in basic, advanced and follow-on training?
  • What definitions exist? How do different definitions affect the application?
  • How do these methods differ from each other?
  • What are the current state-of-the-art technological options?
  • What experience is gained in everyday professional as well as near operational use?
  • What are best practice examples in education and training for the acquisition of competence in terms of Game-based Learning, Serious Gaming, Wargaming, Gamification, AI as well as Virtual and Augmented Reality?
