Mobility of the future will be shaped along the full process chain by people of various professions and occupations. This includes people from research and development, production, sales and aftersales or in recycling. Engineer, designers, social scientists, business people, skilled workers, craftsmen and many other occupational groups are constantly striving for state-of-the-art knowledge and continuing training. In order to meet the demand, the cluster management has initiated modules for fundamental training or continuing training, which are offered by the training or continuing training institutes of the network.
The academic landscape of Baden-Württemberg currently offers the largest scope for interested students at a national level in the sector sustainable mobility. This is the essential result of a survey “Academic Qualification Analysis of the Educational Landscape with Focus on Sustainable Mobility” commissioned by e-mobil BW.
The service offered by Baden-Württemberg is remarkable insofar as that not only technical aspects are in the focus of the educational curriculum but that the emphasis is specifically on system competence in many educational programmes.
The transformation to electric mobility offers the unique opportunity of widening the concept of innovation. Aside from technological innovation, new answers are expected regarding the social acceptance of traffic concepts of the future. Thus the cluster considers it imperative that aside from technological issues, issues of social science are increasingly becoming part of the interdisciplinary curriculums for training and continuing training.
Study courses and occupational profiles need to be continuously developed and adapted with regard to the training of specialists and skilled labour. The growing variety offered has to be communicated with modern marketing concepts to an increasingly larger target group. It has to be made quite clear that curricula are no self-serving purpose but that concrete targets have to be achieved with specific content which quite visibly generate an economic and social added value.
Electric mobility complies fully with this economic and social added value and is thus an important milestone on the way to a digital society which is sustainably mobile.
