"Mit uns digital! Das Zentrum für Niedersachsen und Bremen" (literally translated as: Go digital with the Centre for Lower Saxony and Bremen!) strives for making SMEs fit for the digital change. Around 250 free training sessions are scheduled for specialists and executive managers until the end of 2018.
For example, the participants learn how to plan and simulate factories on the computer and whether the use of automated guided vehicles is also beneficial to small and medium-sized enterprises. Further workshops include additive manufacturing, cognitive intralogistics, Big Data, energy efficiency, online process monitoring and IT security. For details on all training sessions please refer to https://mitunsdigital.de/wordpress/index.php/veranstaltungen-und-termine/schulungen (in German language).
The trainings are funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, Germany. They are organized and hosted by Industry 4.0 specialists of the Hannover Centre for Production Technology (PZH), the Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover gGmbH (IPH), the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and more than a dozen other institutes and companies.
