INDEX needs your support

INDEX is developed by a consortium of renowned universities and research institutes. In order to be able to offer education modules that are as demand-oriented as possible, we are dependent on your help. We would like to know what you need:

  • In which areas do you observe gaps in education in industry 4.0 technologies?
  • Which industry 4.0 core competencies need specialists in your industry?
  • Where do you see potential for improvement in vocational training in relation to industry 4.0?
  • Keyword digitisation: What skills will skilled workers need in the future? Where are qualified employees currently lacking?

The INDEX Consortium has developed a standardised catalogue of questions to determine Europe-wide and regional demand. You will find the link to the questionnaire below.

We are also looking for companies that can be contacted by telephone as part of expert interviews.

We use all data in a highly confidential manner, the results are completely anonymized and aggregated before publication. We ensure that no conclusions can be drawn about your company or your individual requirements profile.
