Lusatia needs new approaches to be perceived as an attractive region. Because the demand for skilled workers in the region is enormous and continues to grow. The industrial park “Schwarze Pumpe” for example needs up to 5,000 skilled workers in the coming years. In the surrounding region further new jobs of this magnitude are expected. Joint action is needed to meet this challenge. So a new form of inter-municipal cooperation with the business community is now being pursued by the mayors of of the towns of Spremberg/Grodk, Hoyerswerda and Weißwasser/O.L.
At the suggestion of the “PROF-ISP” project (Project Skilled Workers in the Schwarze Pumpe Industrial Triangle) conceived by the Wirtschaftsinitiative Lausitz e.V. (WiL), they signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) on August 9th to recruit skilled workers jointly, across borders and in close cooperation with the business community.
At its 3rd meeting, the Regional Monitoring Committee (RMC) had to decide on a total of 15 municipal projects. Four projects from Hoyerswerda were also among them.
On January 31, 2023, Dr. Günther Prokop, Professor of Automotive Engineering at the Technical University of Dresden, presented the Smart Mobility Lab (SML) project to the Hoyerswerda City Council. This will be built in the industrial park in Schwarzkollm.
On the initiative of the cycling group of Mitmachstadt Hoyerswerda, the Hoyerswerda region is now part of the research project “Safety in Cycling” (SimRa) of the Technical University of Berlin and the Einstein Center for Digital Future. Every cyclist in Hoyerswerda and the surrounding area can participate by using the SimRa app and thus become part of the “SimRadelnden” community.
