The CCoA will carry out training and further education measures at craftsmen-, engineering and management level. We will organize and coordinate curricula development, trainings, seminars, conferences and exhibitions. The CCoA aims at the creation of new jobs and the improvement of employment-opportunities in Moroccan industries through advanced automation and digitization technologies. Our focus areas are the automotive sector, agriculture and food-processing.

Initiative and Partnerships

Several German companies from the electrical industry, such as Pflitsch GmbH, Phoenix Contact, Rittal and Siemens AG, are supporting the Competence Center on Automation. Deutsche Messe Technology Academy will provide networking activities between companies and knowledge partners as well as conferences.
