How does the further education of the future look like? What are suitable formats, teaching methods and case studies to train people quickly and efficiently in dealing with the challenges of industry 4.0? They should be actively involved in shaping digitization in order to be able to work with the resulting digital developments, processes and machines. Where is the place for further education and how has it to be equipped? At which point in personnel development does further education have to start and and which actors have to act together?

Further education in times of digitization must have in mind the knowledge to be conveyed and the states of research, the transfer to industrial questions to be made, as well as the respective knowledge character of the information to be conveyed. Especially the latter has always to be taken into account within the (didactic) conception. It is our understanding of further education, that not only the classic triad of knowledge definition (context – background – experience) is taken into account, but also the addressee and his perception horizon.


The need to implement further education as a continuous process in the corporate strategy is therefore given higher priority and essential significance.
We in Aachen have already recognized this for a long time. With the further development and transfer of this way of thinking on the RWTH Aachen Campus, a unique landscape has emerged, which enables us to transform the here gained findings into unique further education offers. Learning in the digital age requires a future-oriented further education strategy in which knowledge transfer is a tangible process. So it is our task to create offers in which knowledge is not only experienced but above all lived to see in order to generate a sustainable form of knowledge acquisition.


Within the RWTH Aachen Campus further education has been firmly anchored as an important development factor and places have been created where knowledge can be experienced. The entities based at RWTH Aachen Campus do not provide the necessary forward-looking infrastructure for further education as a by-product, but as an essential vehicle. By this a close link between knowledge generator and knowledge user is achieved, which provides mutual impulses.
The Campus Forum therefore provides offers and formats that transform their participants themselves – from a listener to an experiencer. We capacitate you for implementation and imitation by inviting to be a part of the creation of knowledge generation on the ground. In this way, we accompany you and your company through all necessary transformation processes and convey the necessary knowledge in a practical way to you.
