ARIC e.V. and tibb e.V. conclude cooperation agreement

ARIC e.V. has gained another cooperation partner. The association “junge technologien in der beruflichen bildung (tibb e.V.)” (young technologies in vocational training), which emerged from the crafts working group of the nationwide BMBF joint project “Erprobungs- und Beratungszentren in der Lasertechnik” (testing and consulting centers in laser technology), has been pursuing the goal since 2001 of developing teaching and dissemination materials specifically for the crafts sector, as well as strategies for publicizing and promoting the applications of young technologies (e.g. 3D printing) in the crafts sector and in SMEs.

This cooperation is also intended to promote the understanding of AI, as well as its development, in order to advance the application of AI in the skilled crafts sector, as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, chambers and educational institutions of the skilled crafts sector.
tibb e.V., a nationwide network for technology transfer between trades,
Research and Education, include over 100 experts from chambers, educational institutions,
associations, research institutes and universities, manufacturers and
user companies as well as other specialists.
The profession of tibb e.V. is to open up new technological developments for the craft sector and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to implement them and to make them profitably usable. Promoting or incorporating the rapid integration of innovative processes and newly developed applications into vocational training concepts and teaching materials is a future component of the cooperation.

Werner Krassau, KI specialist group spokesman at tibb e.V.: “The past year has shown that nothing is possible without great efforts in digitalisation. This is felt in particular by trainees, master craftsmen, participants and teachers at educational institutions in the skilled trades.

The newly founded specialist group “Artificial Intelligence AI” in tibb e.V. would also like to involve the skilled trades and SMEs right from the start. Artificial intelligence has the great potential to fundamentally rethink business models.
