PAUSE - Promoting Acceptance Using Simulated Environments (Oct 2010 – Sep 2012)

PAUSE (EU LLP TOI) aims to remove attitudinal and discriminatory barriers to employment for immigrants and refugees by the production of interactive 3D scenarios to demonstrate and address the key attitudinal barriers to employment. This will allow the target audience to overcome any issues by their own supported problem solving within the virtual scenarios.

Stakeholders and user groups are being included in producing the narratives for the scenarios to ensure that the correct issues are being addressed and in a realistic way. The games, interactive simulations, trainers' manual and reports produced in the PAUSE project are available on the Interactive Systems Research Group website.
