In “Learning e-Mobility Plus“ 9 partners from Germany, Poland and Italy are cooperating. In all three countries, electromobility is currently experiencing a strong burst of development. With the “knowledge partnership” of vocational training, universities and business, the key actors are represented in the project, in order to develop an example of a practical learning environment for vocational schools and an EU-wide application model of cooperation, in order to sustainably assure apprentices with new skills on electromobility/hybrid. The Berlin Agency for Electromobility eMO is an associated partner, who supports the project by distributing the results, executing events and networking.
