Internship weeks Waldeck-Frankenberg 2024

Companies and students get to know each other during one-day internships. The students change companies after each day and gain experience in different professions and companies. A total of nine weeks ( June 24th - August 23rd, 2024 ) are available for the internship days. During this period, both companies and students can participate flexibly.

City cycling will also take place in Waldeck-Frankenberg in 2024.

City cycling is about cycling as many kilometers as possible during the campaign period from June 8th to 28th, thereby protecting the climate and doing something good for your own health.

It is not just the district that is calling for people to take part in the city cycling event; 20 towns and communities in Waldeck-Frankenberg are also taking part in the campaign. Of the 21 municipalities, only Haina is not registered. But cyclists from there can also take part and register for the district. Anyone who lives, works, goes to school or is in a club in Waldeck-Frankenberg can take part, the district administration informs.

Who is genesis and what is it for?

On the one hand, the project is aimed at startups and those interested in founding a company in the green energy sector. This includes ideas and innovations on renewable energies, innovative energy systems, energy technologies and energy efficiency. On the other hand, the project addresses founders and startups whose solutions can be applied in the green energy sector (e.g. AI solutions for the energy system).

genesis consists of an accelerator and a tandem program as well as content-related workshops and cooperation offers. Because a large and sustainable network is the basis for the successful development of startups, networking offers complement the technical content in the project.

New funding programme Corporate Mobility Management BMM

ZIM applications now possible again

Despite the difficult fiscal situation, the federal government has sent a clear positive signal for the ZIM in the 2022 federal budget and in the government's draft budget for 2023. With the once again significantly increased funds and a gradual reduction in medium-term financial planning to a level that is still high compared to previous years, the strong demand from small and medium-sized businesses has been taken into account. This means that applications can now be submitted to the ZIM again.


Strong country – good life

This is how it continues: Dialogue process

"The citizens know best what their towns and communities in rural areas need. That is why we want to specifically promote local engagement in order to create the projects and framework conditions needed there. We are now starting a dialogue process with citizens, associations, clubs and local politicians in which we pass on information, facilitate exchange and take on board suggestions for new ideas," explained Hinz.

The online platform is now available and presents all funding instruments and collects best practice examples on an interactive map. As soon as it is possible again, regional events will also be held to strengthen networking and knowledge transfer.
