The VDMA initiative for student success
“Maschinenhaus – the campus for engineers” is VDMA’s initiative for increasing student success. In this case, greater student success means reducing the high drop-out rates and training more engineers for the labor market. But it also means offering high-quality curricula and practical training to prepare graduates for their later professional lives. With its “Maschinenhaus” initiative, VDMA has been supporting departments and schools of engineering at all German universities to improve their curricula through six scientific studies and five separate subprojects realized since the end of 2012. The aim is to highlight VDMA’s responsibility towards young talent and to help meet the high demand for engineers in mechanical and plant engineering.

The OE-A published the sixth edition of its roadmap at LOPEC. It describes key trends and key challenges for printed electronics technology. It is obvious, that hybrid systems will experience the most significant development in the short and medium term.
In the organic and printed electronics industry, all signs continue to point to growth. The third OE-A Business Climate Survey predicts an increase in sales revenues of eleven percent for 2015.
