Hélène Michel

Professor of Management & Technology Department

Grenoble Ecole de Management

Hélène Michel is a full professor and game designer at Grenoble Ecole de Management. Her aim is to design game mechanisms to support innovation and inspire entrepreneurship. To do this she has created a collection of serious games, several training certificates and a dedicated lab named “the Playground” in which students, teachers et companies can co-design their games. In a “Games for Good” perspective, she is now creating events – such as the Medical Game Jam- to encourage citizen science through gamification.

She is an international expert on the topic (expert for the European Commission, key note speaker in major conferences etc.). Prof Michel has a research funding from Massachusetts Institute of Technology on this topic. The games she develops have an international recognition (MBA Innovation Award Winner, Re-Imagine Education Awards Finalist).
