FiBS has been consulting on educational and socio-economic issues in Germany, Europe, and the world for 25 years. Informed by a variety of specializations, we examine educational sectors and their relationship to larger social issues, innovation, digitization, and labour market policy. This is how we make our contribution to supporting lifelong learning.
Our international, intercultural, and interdisciplinary team allows us to take diverse perspectives on the projects entrusted to us.
Lecture Digitalisation in Industrialised Countries - Opportunities and Societal Challenges for Higher Education
Lecture Workshop: Tell us how you recognize. Understanding how recognition processes operate and how to improve/open them
Lecture Making future skills visible: Opportunities and challenges of using badges to document future key competences at German universities
Lecture The Pacific Alliance: An agenda for cooperation with observer members - Vocational education and training for inclusive development and integration into global value chains
In a new research project FiBS is investigating how skills and qualifications in Chilean mining are changing with a view to sustainability and digitalisation, and what needs and consequences arise from this for education and training. The project is financed by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Cooperation partners are the German-Chilean Chamber of Industry and Commerce CAMCHAL, Fundación Chile and Lucas-Nülle.
FiBS Director Dieter Dohmen considers today's agreement of the Alliance for Education and Training to be insufficient.
In addition to dual qualified, Germany also needs mathematicians, computer scientists, engineers and natural scientists with university degrees as well as educators and nurses who are qualified to attend technical colleges. Dieter Dohmen therefore advocates an overarching strategy rather than a sector strategy for dual training.
