The entrepreneurial process of market-oriented, tangible know-how and technology transfer shapes the very nature and work of the entire Steinbeis network. We foster effective and efficient collaboration between the world of science and academia on the one hand, and trade and industry on the other. Furthermore, we focus on providing direct access to existing sources of know-how and technology while adhering throughout to market rules. We make knowledge and skills available to our clients at source. Our services facilitate the advancement of expertise for our project partners, thus driving their success.
The key thrusts of our Steinbeis philosophy are:
Applying research findings
Applying research findingsThe Steinbeis network taps into the full potential of research bodies, especially universities, translating scientific insight directly and indirectly into professional solutions pertinent to business.
Making specialist knowledge availableThe Steinbeis network opens the door to new opportunity and solutions for its clients and project partners. The Steinbeis portfolio of services revolves around transfer and is equipped with the flexibility it takes to gear solutions to structural and technological developments and market requirements. Knowledge is made available to others through Steinbeis publications, events and, in particular, Steinbeis enterprises. The transfer potential of Steinbeis is expanded continuously through the establishment of new transfer enterprises.
Expanding competenceSteinbeis provides services in the fields of Consulting, Training and Employee Development, Research and Development, and Evaluation and Expert Reports. Through the delivery of these services, knowledge and technologies are made available for successful and recognized application. This expands the skills-base of our clients.
Operating as a networkThe Steinbeis network is based on a decentralized structure marked by flat hierarchies. Each Steinbeis enterprise is managed as a “business within the Steinbeis business.” Directors of each business act independently, under the central umbrella of the Steinbeis organization. They hold full responsibility for their actions, in direct, confidential contact with customers.
Addressing public needs with private enterprise solutionsIn delivering projects and providing services, Steinbeis sees itself as a partner to the public sector.
