DigiHub goes Digital!

Digital Hub Neckar-Alb and Sigmaringen now offering online webinars to regional SMEs

By Sabine Högsdal

The Digital Hub Neckar-Alb und Sigmaringen has recently announced its intention to advance digitisation in the state of Baden Württemberg. Due to obvious corona restrictions, the project's face-to-face events for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have now also been digitised. From 45-minute presentations to three-hour workshops - all event formats are being offered as online webinars.

The Digital Hub Neckar-Alb and Sigmaringen (DNS) is aiming to network digitisation players from different economic sectors, research and public administration. Existing digitisation activities are to be used and promoted and new target group-oriented digitisation services and activities are to be created, especially for SMEs in the region. The project is being funded by the Ministry of Economics, Labour and Housing of Baden-Württemberg within the framework of the initiative ‘Wirtschaft digital Baden-Württemberg’ (Digitizing the Baden Württemberg Economy).

The Digital Hub focus at Reutlingen University is the digital transformation of production and logistics. Within this field, a wide range of information events and training courses on current digitisation topics (such as 5G in an industrial environment) are being offered to SMEs. Companies have the opportunity to benefit from a free initial consultation on digital transformation and thereby determine their digitisation potential. In addition, the project will be establishing a competence centre at the university on the topic of digital twinning. This will give SMEs the exclusive opportunity to obtain information on this topic, to state their preferences and requirements and to experience the first ‘Digital Twin’ demonstrators live in Werk150 - ESB Business School's factory test field on the Reutlingen University campus.

Since the Corona pandemic means that larger groups are currently not allowed to enter Werk150, we cordially invite you to participate in our online events. By clicking on the respective event, you will find detailed information and a registration form. Participation in all events is free of charge.

The Digital Hub Neckar-Alb and Sigmaringen looks forward to meeting you online!
