Technology meets talent: Ready for the working world of tomorrow?

How can young talents be inspired for STEM professions? What opportunities are there for integrating new technologies such as robotics into school lessons? And what examples do we already have of this today? This is what KUKA is addressing throughout November under the motto #TechmeetsTalent

Everyday life is now inconceivable without modern technology. User-friendly operating systems have made using laptops the norm, automated software replaces cumbersome manual work, and smartphones have become a constant companion. New technologies are developing rapidly. Industrial robots are also becoming more and more flexible and are being used in an ever wider range of occupational fields, such as crafts or hospitals. How will we work and live in the future? We need to answer this question - and prepare the next generation for it. Young talents must be equipped for the future. Only when technology meets talent we can exploit all the possibilities. Why do we need robots? What can they do and where will they be used? Why are they becoming increasingly important for everyday work and society? To answer these and many other questions, KUKA invites you to various events in November under the motto #TechmeetsTalent
