This paper presents the objectives and developments in the scope of the HERA project, an Erasmus + initiative whose purpose is to address the interdisciplinary soft skill needs in the fields of engineering and economics. HERA deploys active learning to expose Higher Education students to complex challenges, the solution to which requires the integration of interdisciplinary knowledge in engineering and economics in a manner that emulates real-world problem-solving processes. The article describes the HERA serious game environment and proposes the game dynamics, scenarios and challenges, showing how they can be used to achieve the project goals.
