Steinbeis believes in transferring know-how and technology through collaboration. Although our goal is to exploit the universities’ potential to engage in transfer in an independent and entrepreneurial way, primarily for projects with clients in industry, this does have to bring benefit to the universities. We aim to foster successful transfer in keeping with private enterprise, adding value for all parties involved.
The universities benefit from the transfer project with Steinbeis in terms of the school’s image and the Steinbeis model provides motivated staff at the universities and graduates with a tried-and-trusted vehicle for entrepreneurial part-time activities. The universities also benefit from the financial advantages and their infrastructure is put to good use by Steinbeis Enterprises.
We have also set up joint transfer companies with universities, making it possible to promote regional transfer, thus reinforcing university collaboration by establishing the philosophy at an institutional level.
