01/15/2014 The "LERNWELT ELEKTROMOBILITÄT Berlin” project is bringing partners from business and science together for two years to find new strategies and solutions for attracting and qualifying a new generation of skilled workers in the field of electromobility . It was launched on 7 January 2014 with a joint event by the project partners in conjunction with the Berlin Agency for Electromobility (eMO).

The "LERNWELT ELEKTROMOBILITÄT Berlin” project is bringing partners from business and science together for two years to find new strategies and solutions for attracting and qualifying a new generation of skilled workers in the field of electromobility . It was launched on 7 January 2014 with a joint event by the project partners in conjunction with the Berlin Agency for Electromobility (eMO).


The leader of the project consortium is the Institut für Betriebliche Bildungsforschung (BBF), which promotes applied research on business and industry-related education. Additional partners include Elektro-Innung Berlin which is the city’s 800-member electrical engineering and technology guild, the Berlin University of Applied Sciences (HTW), and the Lernfabrik NEUE TECHNOLOGIEN Berlin, a provider of development services for skilled workers.
The aim of the project is to put sustainable structures into place to educate and further train skilled workers in the field of electromobility. Four independent sub-projects are focusing on designing, developing, and testing education and further training programs for pupils, apprentices, and college students. All of the results will be published on a joint learning portal. This project is sponsored by the Berlin Senate Office for Labour, Integration and Women’s Affairs.


As part of the Federal Government’s Showcase Regions for Electric Mobility, the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is funding the LERNWELT ELEKTROMOBILITÄT Berlin project – one of 30 projects taking place in Berlin-Brandenburg. These core projects are coordinated by the eMO . For further information, please visit www.emo-berlin.de.


In April 2012, the German Government selected four regions in the country to act as "Showcase Regions for Electric Mobility”. Based on a decision by the German Bundestag, research and development into alternative drive systems is to take place across each of these regions. The Federal Government is providing a total of €180 million in funding for these large scale demonstration and pilot projects. The aim is to test electric mobility within the overlapping systems of energy, vehicle, and transport.
