Initiative and Partnerships
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 CCOA as part of the special initiative Training and Employment.

The special initiative, which also operates under the Invest for Jobs brand, has been active in Morocco since 2019 and supports investment projects by German, European and Moroccan companies with the aim of training more qualified workers and creating sustainable jobs in Morocco.

Graduate School of Leadership and Management of Steinbeis University is in the lead of the project. Several German companies from the electrical industry, such as Pflitsch GmbH, Phoenix Contact, Rittal and Siemens AG, are supporting CCoA. Deutsche Messe Technology Academy will provide networking activities between companies and knowledge partners as well as conferences.
