The VALUE Foundation aims to design, facilitate, and conduct worldwide research, development, and outreach on the crossroads of gaming and academia. Our approach is characterized by playfulness and accessibility.

The VALUE Foundation was founded in March 2017 in an effort to consolidate and expand the work of the VALUE project. The latter was an unaffiliated, volunteer initiative of five individuals with a passion for gaming and academic knowledge of heritage and archaeology. The VALUE project focused on both research and outreach, with all activities combining the past and gaming. The VALUE Foundation will expand on the pioneering work of the VALUE project by investing more deeply in gaming and heritage, as well as tapping into other academic fields.
