Training and Facilities

The region’s universities and universities of applied sciences play a major role in supplying the next generation of academics for ChemDelta Bavaria member companies. There’s a lot on offer: numerous academic institutes – with which several companies keep a close contact – within a radius of some 100 kilometers. The map (on the right) gives a good overview of the institutes.

In terms of specialized training, success is with those companies that train their new employees themselves on site: many of the 1,000 or so trainees have achieved commendations from the regional chamber of industry and commerce or have won awards in national or international competitions.
