Leonardo da Vinci Innovation (werktitel)

Oude IJsselstreek, Bocholt, CIVON and other D / NL organisations are initiators of Leonardo da Vinci Innovation. The project will be the occasion to take the traditional manufacturing industry in the border area and the development to the smart industry as a background: to achieve a permanent attention for the world of technology and to draw attention to the border region as a promising, innovative region.
Preliminary studies show that the regional economy will get a high demand for technically qualified personnel in the future and that the attractive offer of the regional economy for technical specialists is little known even by its own population. With the Leonardo da Vinci innovation programme, we want to use the themes of youth, technology, creativity and participation to solve these problems:
• Youth: To draw the attention of the primary school pupils through specific programmes (workshops, technology days, talent weeks, etc.) to the topic of technology and innovation and to bring them in contact to the University of Applied Sciences (Junge Universität and IJzerwijs).
• Technology: To contact schoolchildren and students with innovative companies in the region in order to promote the attractiveness of the region for graduates (Talentgarten, Techniktag).
• Creativity: Promoting the technical and innovative potential of the regional economy (Factory Matches and Kunst & Handwerk)
• Participation: Concentration on innovation and technology for broad sections of the population (public events)
• Year of Leonardo da Vinci: Leonardo da Vinci as a source of inspiration and symbol for achieving the goals.
Due to the corona pandemic, the activities that were planned were partially implemented in the first half of 2021. Many measures of the sub-projects were – under the leadership of the Leonardo project office and in consultation with the sub-project partners – shifted to the second half of 2021 and 2022.
