The presentation is a part of the project Building cluster competence development in South-Savo. The project identifies the building industry’s competence needs and plans new learning paths and training content (e.g. industrial wood construction, building technology / building automation, renovation and other special construction) based on the needs. One of the goals is to increase the engineering and technology expertise of construction companies in South Savo, especially in the field of industrial wood construction and automation technology.
