Advanced vocational training is becoming increasingly important. An open attitude toward new developments and a willingness to learn are important prerequisites for professional success and job security. B&R therefore provides teachers at public educational institutions the opportunity to take part in automation technology seminars. We provide the support you need when preparing new topics and content – free of charge.

The B&R summer workshop has been a great success throughout its 18-year history. This year we hope to once again welcome many students from technical educational institutions in Braunau am Inn, Austria.

The B&R summer workshop will take place this year at the HTLBLA Braunau, Austria from August 27 - August 29, 2018.

Industrial IoT - Convergence of automation and IT

Although Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT) have long existed in relative isolation, efforts to align the two concepts are now rapidly gaining traction.

The goal of Germany's "Plattform Industrie 4.0" project is to conduct a very detailed examination of the manufacturing process, to describe it – and ultimately to improve it.

Industrial production is a very important aspect for us. The influence of IoT technology will be far more pervasive: The networking of household appliances, intelligent energy distribution systems (smart grids) and networked transportation systems (smart mobility) are only a few examples. The core focus in all these areas is connectivity that transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries. That's the only way the digital transformation will succeed.

The respective 3-day parallel seminars are designed to build on each other. Participants will receive information and exercises related to the use of innovative automation technology. The following topics are offeredThe Basic seminar is a prerequisite for all other seminars.:

The workshops are held by B&R engineers and experts.

ETA system

In a society built on knowledge and information, lifelong learning is an essential pillar. When it comes to software engineering, many scenarios can be simulated during development, yet nothing can fully replace hands-on experience. The ETA system has been designed as a realistic development and training environment for classroom and laboratory experiments.
