PAL – Perspective Work Lausitz

Establishment of a competence center for the work of the future in Saxony and Brandenburg

The “Perspektive Arbeit Lausitz” project is developing and establishing cross-industry demonstration centers. These take the form of Living, Learning, Innovation and Mobile Labs, which focus on people’s work and are geared primarily to the needs of Lusatian companies.

The labs offer the opportunity to learn about innovative technologies such as AI or data-based assistance systems and to experience new didactic methods for skills development.

Four universities – Cottbus University of Technology, Dresden University of Technology, Mittweida University of Applied Sciences and West Saxony University of Applied Sciences Zwickau – and 23 companies and associations from Saxony and Brandenburg are pooling their expertise with the aim of making work in Lusatia effective, attractive and healthier through artificial intelligence (AI) systems.


Duration: November 2021 – November 2026

Funding program: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

Target group: Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), large companies, universities and colleges, associations and public authorities
