Festo and WorldSkills: Promoting talent – rousing enthusiasm


Rousing young people’s enthusiasm for careers in technology and the promotion of training have been core activities of Festo for decades.

For this reason, Festo Didactic has supported the Mechatronics Competition since its inception in 1991 – as official supplier of competition equipment and organizer of the Mechatronics discipline. As the need for training increases, so does the demand for greater sophistication of training methods. Innovative models are needed to gain an insight into training methods and systems in various countries, make comparisons, get new stimuli, and convert all this into Best Practices.
