Stuttgart – Bosch is currently looking for six young people from across the globe to take part in the Bosch World Experience. The global supplier of technology and services will be sending participants on a 16-day trip around the world to visit well-known projects that Bosch is involved in.

Bosch is more than you think

Since Bosch was founded more than 125 years ago, the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” has evolved into a global supplier of technology and services. Today, the company offers a broad range of products and services in the areas of automotive technology, industrial technology, consumer goods, as well as energy and building technology. And yet many people know Bosch only as a producer of cordless screwdrivers, washing machines, and spark plugs.

With the “Bosch is more than you think” initiative, six women and men will be travelling to three continents to discover the ways in which Bosch leaves its mark on the world with technologies that are “Invented for life.” “Many people are only familiar with a fraction of the solutions that Bosch offers to improve the quality of life and spark people’s enthusiasm. Bosch World Experience will offer its international participants an exclusive look behind the scenes of six major projects in which Bosch is involved, including in areas where one might not expect to find us,” says Karoline Hagen, a Bosch marketing manager, in describing the aim of the trip.

Participants will learn, for instance, how container ships will soon be lowered and lifted a total of 26 meters in the Panama Canal’s new locks, which are equipped with Bosch Rexroth hydraulics. Each of the stops on the trip will include a full program of complementary activities. In London, for instance, Bosch World Experience participants will take part in a blogger workshop. And in San Francisco, they will take a tour of the city on e-bikes.

Involving the online community via social media

Participants will report on their experiences with posts, pictures, and videos on their social media channels. The online community can interact with participants via these channels, and thus also take part in the Bosch World Experience. Contributions will then be summarized in a blogumentary on a special website.

Participants should have an affinity for social media and a sense of curiosity

Applications will be accepted starting April 7, 2014, at http://www.experience-bosch.com. Applicants must first register, answer questions on each of the destinations, and provide their personal details. They should have an affinity for social media and a sense of curiosity. Following the application phase, six participants from around the world will be chosen.
