Industrial know-how for Morocco

CCoA: Qualification for Employment and Industrial Development



Morocco is considered a dynamic industrial emerging country and location for the development of the African market. The Deutsche Messe Technology Academy is a partner in the establishment of a German-Moroccan competence center for automation, the “Competence Center on Automation” (CCoA). The competence center trains young people and supports companies in automation and Industry 4.0 projects.

In cooperation with Steinbeis-Hochschule Träger gGmbH, Deutsche Messe Technology Academy is responsible for designing the event program. Several German companies from the electrical industry such as PFLITSCH GmbH, PHOENIX CONTACT, Rittal and Siemens AG as well as the industry association ZVEI support the project. On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is supporting the establishment of the competence center as part of the special initiative Training and Employment.
