Pro Helvetia promotes the creation and dissemination of all areas of professional contemporary design, including game design. All funding measures in the field of Interactive Media are now listed under the title Game Design as part of the Design division

Merger of Interactive Media into Design division within Pro Helvetia

In the dynamic landscape of creative disciplines, the merger of Interactive Media into our Design division marks an exciting shift in our focus. Following cultural, economic, and developmental factors, our conviction in bolstering the Swiss game creators led us to refine our support mechanisms and to respond with our institutional schemes to the growing industry trends. Today, educational institutions are pivoting towards specialized training in Game Design, acknowledging its position as the creative heartbeat of interactive experiences, the industry is thriving and various organisations are embracing digital games as an invaluable innovative cultural and economic asset.

To streamline and enhance accessibility, all funding initiatives geared towards Game Design are consolidated within the Design division and from now on listed under Design.

Our funding is open to creatives working on Interactive digital content for a variety of devices (computers, game consoles, mobile devices, for mixed reality, etc.) the use of which requires a high level of interaction (for more info, head to all support measures).
