SACMI technology books supplied to university students to promote training and grow skills in an enabling sector for applied sustainability
«An excellent interface between science and in-the-field experience» is how Pascal Seffern, Professor at the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences, underlines the value of SACMI’s books on technologies for the production of ceramic sanitaryware and tableware, recently handed out to students following a partnership established between SACMI and the German university.
The aim of the new partnership is to inspire tomorrow’s graduates and teach them the basic principles and practical applications of the ceramics industry. «These books transfer to the reader a wide range of fundamental concepts regarding all areas of the sanitaryware and tableware manufacturing industry» explains the professor.
Underlying the initiative is the transformation of manufacturing towards applied sustainability, especially in the construction industry. «The ceramics industry can still enjoy a growing reputation and relevance as an enabling sector – observes Seffern – but it is essential to foster and develop young specialized talent».
This has brought to the forefront the strategic topic of training and the capacity of the ceramic world to attract young technicians and technologists. The partnership with SACMI promises to stimulate skill and passion for the ceramics sector, combining academic research with SACMI’s decades-long in-the-field experience to discover increasingly efficient and sustainable application solutions.
