Action group 2 „Training and qualification offers for and through digitization“ met on May 26th, 2020 for an informative and fruitful meeting. Current topics regarding competence and digitization were discussed with the aim of an effective exchange and the development of common approaches. Therefor the subject areas „competence, training measure & qualification“, „change in competence development through digitization“ and „acceptance of digitization“ were focused. The meeting was characterized by interesting contributions from the participating projects and the lively exchange afterwards. As a result, it was decided to create and publish a joint book with Springer. The book will focus on the subject area “Competencies and competence development for and through digitization” in a scientifically and practice-oriented way. We are pleased to be able to make the fascinating findings of the participating projects accessible to the public in this way. You can find more information on the participating projects on the corresponding websites.

The time has come: The tool for planning- and execution management is being tested on a real construction project! In cooperation with the Brüggemann company, the Egelkamp company from Recke tests the functionality of the tool on a real construction project. The tool and its use were presented to the company Egelkamp at a first meeting on February 10th 2020. In order to make a comparison possible, the planning in this first pilot project is done traditionally on the one hand and with our tool on the other hand. We are looking forward to the results! Feel free to contact us if you would like to find out more.


The first advisory board meeting of the „IN-DIG-O“ project took place in Braunschweig on January 14th, 2020. We were very happy to welcome Ms. Marianne Putzker (University Cooperation Office – Trade Unions Region South-East Lower Saxony at the TU Braunschweig), Mr. Stefan Plesser (Energydesign Braunschweig) and Mr. Mike Sieder (iBHolz, TU Braunschweig). The current status and the target visions of the tools for planning- and execution management as well as for the transfer of learning and knowledge were presented to the advisory board members. Furthermore, our network partner Mr. Bernd Neumann from the Chamber of Crafts Osnabrück-Emsland-Grafschaft Bentheim presented the status of the network building and further education offers. We were able to gain new perspectives and evidence of reference through the different perspectives of the advisory board members, which we will consider in further processes of the project! For example, new impulses could be added to integrate the legal concerns when using the two tools. Since processes are brought forward to the planning phase by the BIM tool, it should be borne in mind that the expertise of the installer companies should also be taken into account in this phase. Regarding the tool for learning and knowledge transfer, the special cultural self-image while learning in construction companies should be kept in mind and be included.

Third Project Meeting IN-Dig-o

The third group meeting of the project „IN-DIG-O“ took place on the 11th of March 2020 in Braunschweig. Besides discussing current events in the development of the two digital tools, the next steps for testing the tools in practice were planned. It was also worked out how the work processes in companies could change due to using the tools.
