How a KUKA robot got on the poster at the streetcar stop
When employees or visitors leave the KUKA Development and Technology Center in Augsburg, it is only a few steps to the “KUKA/ Partnachweg” streetcar stop. On display there in October: A poster of the Bavarian State Ministry for Family, Labor and Social Affairs (StMAS) including a KUKA robot.
The story behind it? At numerous public transport stops in Augsburg, Munich and throughout Bavaria, the Ministry advertises the continuing education campaign “Komm weiter in Bayern”. With the online portal kommweiter.bayern.de, the StMAS has created an offering on the topic of continuing vocational education. As a central portal for continuing education, the website offers an overview of a wide range of qualification opportunities in Bavaria. Professionals and companies can find out about consulting services and subsidies. Five motifs from the trades, education and industry sectors were photographed to promote the Free State’s continuing education offensive online and offline in a wide variety of media. From online banners to printed information flyers and large posters. Two motifs from KUKA were selected for the industrial sector. They were shot at the KUKA headquarters in Augsburg.
KUKA invests in young talent and thus in the future of the company and in the future of Germany as a business location. The goal is to provide young people with the right skills so that they can independently find the best possible solution. Just recently, Carolina Trautner, State Minister for Family Affairs, Labor and Social Affairs, and Augsburg’s Mayor Eva Weber visited KUKA to get an idea of the training in the future topics of robotics, digitization and automation.
