Project description

What is behind NetÖV?

NetÖV - Networking of digital knowledge and learning platforms for personalized further education and cooperative knowledge exchange in the mobility industry

The goal of the research project is to network the diverse digital education, knowledge, and information spaces in the mobility industry. For employees in transportation companies, user-oriented access to formal and non-formal continuing education is created through personalized recommendations. Informal continuing education is promoted through a cooperative exchange of knowledge and the cross-company visibility of expertise. This enables those interested in continuing education to find and take advantage of precisely tailored continuing education offerings. The need for such offerings is very high in public transportation (PT) companies. The reasons for this are:

  • the structure of employees in transport companies,

  • urgent, current socio-political goals and

  • the challenges of the digitalized working world.

The NetÖV project makes a valuable contribution to making education and training in the mobility industry transparent and accessible.

Background, planned implementation and challenges in the podcast on the NetÖV project.
