Impressions “Innovative Education 4.0 Projects”
The company’s success is a result of its training activities, following the so-called Education 4.0 approach. Dr. Stetter ITQ supports young students and gives them the opportunity to work on sustainable projects and technological innovations around the topics of Smart Farming, Smart Mobility und Smart Home on Gran Canaria. More than 40 students were able to develop and implement first concepts and prototypes, e.g., for a Solar Golf Car or a Bamboo Solar Car, which use solar energy, as well as PlastiX, a project to avoid plastic pollution.
Lars Bornecke is the Branch Manager of Dr. Stetter ITQ and has already successfully built up a large network with international companies and universities. “We work closely with local as well as many German and English universities for internships and seminars. For many students we are very interesting as an employer. At SMART GREEN ISLAND they can implement innovative and sustainable projects, under the Spanish sun!”, says Bornecke. Companies such as Beckhoff, B&R and igus have been supporting the Education 4.0 approach of Dr. Stetter ITQ for several years with the latest technologies and expertise. The partners and sponsors can work with the young innovative minds on Industry Challenges and see for themselves the talent of the students during the projects. This creates a completely new type of Recruiting 4.0, in which new, sustainable business models emerge.
