xDelia project starts Year 3!

| Tuesday, March 1st, 2011 | No Comments »

Officially, the xDelia project has just finished its second of three years under the European Commission’s grant. As a practical matter, things don’t change in terms of our research just because of the flip of a calendar page – clearly, our project’s organization tracks the natural and appropriate timelines of investigation rather than artificial ones – but there are a few considerations to be made, nonetheless.

Primarily, we must now prepare for the 24-month review with the Commission’s experts. This preparation is no small matter, it requires the crafting of sundry documents and the planning of presentations that condense the efforts of an entire year across 7 institutions.

In a nutshell, our first two years focused on important deliverables from the project concerning the foundations and methodology for a coherent approach, important applied research in lab and field studies underpinning some neurophysiological aspects of financial decision making, and investigating and prototyping game technology for relevant enhanced learning strategies.

Year 3 will now focus on development, testing, implementation and evaluation, followed by the dissemination of our results. This includes producing a technology-enhanced “learning journey” for real investors in the field and an important longitudinal study in the lab.
