Digital donations.

Due to spatial restructurings, the machine tool manufacturer BURKHARDT+WEBER donated two smartboards to local institutions. The new owners were easy to find. Based on a long-term partnership, the university “Hochschule Reutlingen” is delighted to fit-in one smartboard on their campus in Rommelsbach, called rbz. The rbz is a unique cooperation, first of its kind in Germany, between the Bosch Group, Reutlingen University and the University of Stuttgart.

Electronics, computer sciences and mechatronics are difficult to separate in today’s machine engineering. Especially with many topics related to Industry 4.0, we need junior staff with interdisciplinary knowledge. We have found local partners with the University “Hochschule Reutlingen” and rbz, who regularly recruit committed students in the framework of bachelor and master theses, and meanwhile have become an integral part of the BW-team”, reports Volker Höschle, Commercial and HR-Manager at BW.

Further, we are happy to enrich a local primary school with the second smartboard, where young pupils already get in touch with digital presentation methods nowadays. The smartboard will allow them first experiences of presentation skills in a playful and enjoyable way.
