Lifelong learning is essential as the industrial skill requirements are ever-increasing. However, traditional upskilling activities for industrial workers have shown less-than-optimal transfer of the learning content from education to practice. Hence, new approaches are needed, and Learning Factory-concepts are showing great potential. This paper investigates how Learning Factories (LF) under the Manufacturing Academy of Denmark (MADE) apply LF concepts in lifelong learning. The MADE initiative comprises three LFs operated by university colleges which develop and evaluate the learning activities in collaboration with university researchers. The LFs focus on 3D-printing, simulation and Operations Management, respectively. We analyse the MADE LFs' concepts and develop hypotheses to be tested in future work.
