CIB has been promoting and supporting school institutions in Spain since 2017 and is continuously expanding the network: in 2022, we are pleased to announce the cooperation with our new partner schools in Seville, Lisbon and Porto. This means that there are already six German schools abroad on the Iberian Peninsula that benefit from the CIB Impulsa program.
Promoting young talent is a top priority at CIB
Sponsorship under CIB Impulsa supports schools and focuses primarily on STEM subjects. The promotion of students and young talents is particularly important to us: The sponsorship offers the opportunity to implement various projects and activities at the respective schools, with each school developing individual projects involving the students.
With an eye to the future, CIB supports the students on their way into the professional world and gives them a concrete insight into the modern world of work by participating in the schools’ career and study fairs. In addition, CIB offers students the opportunity to complete an internship, dual study program or apprenticeship at its sites in Spain and Germany.
CIB’s sponsorship of the Jugend Forscht Iberia 2022 competition also stems from its trusting collaboration with German Schools, which started in 2017 with the German School Las Palmas and has continued to grow since then.
First actions of the new collaborations
At the German School Porto, the Study and Career Fair for 11th and 12th grade students took place in February. The event took place in a hybrid format and CIB sponsored the “fair kit” for the participating students: cloth bags with the logo of the school and CIB, filled with pen, USB stick and tag with CIB branding.
A ” CIB workroom ” is currently being set up at the German School Seville, which will be made available for students to work on their projects using CIB-sponsored technology such as a 3D printer.
We are looking forward to more exciting projects and a good cooperation in the future.
