Kooperation von Unternehmen und Berufsschulen am Beispiel des Energiemanagements für die Industrie 4.0

5 Participating countries:
Start: 15-10-2017 - End: 14-10-2019
Project Reference: 2017-1-DE02-KA202-004221
EC Grant: 128115 EUR

Programme: Erasmus+
Key Action: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of good practices
Action Type: Strategic Partnerships for vocational education and training


The rising degree of digitalization and complexity of current and moreover future production processes (Industry 4.0, digitalization of the production) demands an education that can cope with the requirements.
Apprentices who are particularly trained in the field of electrical engineering, mechatronics and economy who should be available as skilled workers for the enterprises, have to be able to record the data needed for the production process. Furthermore they should work the data up and integrate them into the right context. This results in new and more complex requirements for the employees
An essential concern of this project is the improvement of the cooperation in the area of topics which are relevant for the practice between vocational schools and enterprises. The latter could give support to vocational schools by supervising the apprentices in specific operational processes and by providing the technical equipment. In addition the handling and the knowledge of complex technology becomes amplified.
At the request of the enterprises, the cooperation should take place on the national and European level to guarantee a wide-ranging exchange of experiences concerning the work-based learning.
Another intention of the project is informal spreading of the “Dual System” based on the level of practice. Thereby, countries should be addressed which are solely focused on academic education.
Because of the variety of suitable topics it is necessary to limit the selection of the potential issues. The topic “energy management” offers a good intersection because of its meaning for the present age and the future.
Based on a common start of learning arrangements between the vocational schools and the enterprises, the “best practice” approaches of the five European participating partner schools are being tested and if necessary optimized. This happens in two runs. By the comparison of the approaches and the determination of possibilities for improvements in the first step of the “teach-and learn-activity” and the integration of the results into the second step of the learning arrangement, the embedding of the “best practice” strategies in all situations of learning takes place. The second run is for proving and further embedding of the “best practice” strategies.
The apprentices / students work self-reliant on the learning arrangements, besides the skills for managing operating assignments are trained.
Following intentions are achieved by the project:
1. Optimizing of methods:
a. current approaches,
b. self-reliance,
c. the cooperation between enterprises and educational facilities.


Results for this project are not yet available. They might become available after the project's end date.
