Training of digital coaches under the Digital Coach project
Lecturers from the Technical University and representatives of companies from Gabrovo participated in the training for digital coaches on April 13 and 14, 2022.
They had to get to know and learn to apply in practice the ADAPTION maturity model, which is aimed at assessing the state of companies from the point of view of digitalization. Along with the assessment, the digital coaches will support companies to identify measures to achieve a higher degree of digitalization in their chosen processes or departments.
The participants also had the opportunity to learn about the work of the training factories at the Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany and the Technical University of Patras, Greece. The two countries have different approaches to the organization of learning factories, but the goal is the same – bringing the learning process closer to the real environment. In the Digital Coach project, the training factories will be able to try out in practice some of the proposed solutions for digitization of production.
The next stage is conducting audits in five pilot enterprises in the district.
The training was opened by the Rector of the Technical University in Gabrovo, who shared the university’s plans to create a training factory in Gabrovo as well.
Further cooperation was agreed between the universities of Gabrovo and Bochum to support the implementation of this initiative.
The training was conducted by experts from the leading organization – the Institute for Labor and Legal Sciences at the Ruhr University, who participated online, and the project coordinator – Kristina Burova-Kessler led the training on site.
The event was organized by the Gabrovo Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which is a project partner.
