Our modern industrial and service society is shaped by innovations, which are creating new technologies, products and technical systems, on the one hand, and professional services, on the other hand, in order to develop new markets and create future-proof jobs. However, demographic development indicates that a large proportion of older and experienced employees will be retiring, while the number of high school graduates is diminishing. In the medium-term, this parallel development is going to cause a shortage of engineers and skilled labor. One particular challenge is to make technological options utilizable for learning and incorporate them in companies directly and in the inter-company vocational training. The paper describes on the basis of two industrial case studies the utilization of mixed reality technologies as well for education and training as for technical knowledge transfer. The required technological and the didactical basics will be explained. The paper concludes with a best practice approach for transfer of expertise from research organizations to the processing industry based on the "German-Baltic Expertise Network for Virtual and Augmented Reality" project.
