Competence development for manufacturing industries in the counties of Sörmland, Västmanland and Örebro, on a fundamental knowledge level and in regard to new needs of the industries in connection with digitalisation, automation, sustainability and electrification

The project strengthens the competence and position in the labour market for men and women who work in manufacturing industries

The project contributes to companies coming out of the corona crisis with their competence needs addressed as well as retained and sustainable competitiveness


The project provides competence development for manufacturing industries in the counties of Sörmland, Västmanland and Örebro on a fundamental knowledge level and on digitalisation, automation, sustainability and electrification. Employees, laid-off workers and workers given notice of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), in manufacturing industries, first and foremost the automotive industry. The company must be domiciled in the regions of Sörmland, Västmanland or Örebro counties.


  • 40 participating companies, from Sörmland, Västmanland and Örebro (max. 60)
  • 25 companies have or have had competence development
  • A good 200 people have received competence development (of a goal of 600)
  • The larger companies have primarily trained their personnel in mandatory training (forklift, overhead crane, work posing a fire hazard, thermosetting plastic, Machine Directive, etc.)
  • The medium-sized companies are training in what we can call competitiveness-enhancing courses: reading drawings & measurement techniques, weld tests, visual checks, OFP, LOU, programming welding robots, CAD/CAM, etc.
  • Up to now there have been relatively few who have trained in strategic or reorganisation courses.
  • Nine companies have participated in the workshop in competence development as a strategic tool.
  • Eight companies are participating in the Tillväxtmotorn CompCor group.
