What awaits you in this course?

The InnoPeer Advanced Manufacturing (AVM) courses offer a practical introduction to the topic of Industrie 4.0. The transformation towards Industrie 4.0 is one of the key challenges for European companies. Traditional factories turn into “smart factories” by adding connectivity and self-intelligence. Components are printed instead of casted or forged, and profit drivers will be data instead of real products. However, technological changes are not the only challenges awaiting companies in the new environment of Industrie 4.0. There are also business-related challenges in the fields of organisation, human resources and the development of new business models, which need to be addressed if a company wants to maintain its market position.

This course focuses on innovative human resources management, leadership and learning that can support companies operating within a challanging new dynamic environment.

Complementary courses offered by InnoPeer AVM include: Organisational Management, Business Model Development and Strategy, and two courses on Technology.

The course "InnoPeer AVM" forms the basis for a comprehensive further education on current topics in the field of Industrie 4.0. It is funded by the European Union under project number CE1119.
