NPB Automation is the initiator of the sponsorship of equipment and licenses at Higher Vocational Education Jönköping, together with Rockwell Automation, Festo and Rittal.

"It is in our and all society's interest that the young people who choose to invest two years of study will get the most out of their studies. In this case they must have the latest equipment," says Johan Klinthage, NPB Automation, who has taken the sponsorship initiative.

The total value of equipment and licenses amounts to EUR 36 200 and is equipment of the most update versions, which makes the students well prepared when they finish their education.

With 46 applicants for the 20 places in the autumn, there is every opportunity for the region to get help with their need for educated employees. This year's graduation class consisting of 19 students in the field of automation and robotics has already one month before the degree been recruited.
