There is a lot of potential in our city and region: More than 200 events will be held in 27 cities on the occasion of the TalentTage Ruhr (Ruhr Talent Days) from 19 - 29 September 2018. Under the motto “Mach mit!” (Get involved!), these events target secondary and post-secondary students, parents and teaching professionals. This is the first time that Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport) will be represented at these events.
“It is only natural that our group supports TalentTage Ruhr, so that youths have an opportunity to get ready for the future, discover their talents and develop self-confidence,” says Erich Staake, Chief Executive Officer of Duisburger Hafen AG (duisport).
A total of 35 students from Theodor-König-Gesamtschule (Duisburg) and Berufskolleg Dinslaken (Dinslaken) will learn more about the many services and challenges of the logistics industry at duisport's subsidiary duisport packing logistics GmbH. Services include the production of customized and up to five meter high packaging for all types of goods, and the loading of the same on inland water vessels.
TalentTage Ruhr is organized by TalentMetropole Ruhr (TMR), the main educational project of the Initiativkreis Ruhr. TMR is a non-profit subsidiary of the Initiativkreis Ruhr, of which duisport is a member.
“The Ruhr region is a region of opportunity with an enormous potential of talent,” says Bärbel Bergerhoff-Wodopia, member of the Board of Directors of the RAG Foundation and education officer of the Initiativkreis Ruhr.
