NRW Minister of Economic Affairs informs himself about our RegioQuest project

On April 8, Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart, NRW Minister for Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy, learned about our RegioQuest project. The project is about bringing young people into contact with apprenticeships in a playful way.

RegioQuest consists of an app and a platform. On the platform, companies store information about themselves and their training positions. The app and platform are linked to each other. When students call up the app, riddles known as quests pop up at various locations as they walk through the city. By solving the puzzles, they collect points that they can then redeem in stores in South Westphalia.

The Ministry of Economics is funding the project through the European Social Fund and the REACT-EU initiative. and the REACT-EU initiative. It will initially be tested in Olpe. However, all of South Westphalia is to benefit from the findings.
