Steinbeis Enterprises see themselves as subcontractors – an “extended workbench” providing key development know-how. Working on a freelance basis or directly on the client’s premises, our teams improve standard processes and input with new know-how. In the field of research, we take on assignments with clear tasks to be addressed. Our portfolio ranges from the optimization of products, processes and systems to the integration of emerging technology into existing applications and even completely new developments.
The Steinbeis Engineering Forum facilitates transfer-oriented research and development throughout the Steinbeis Network, simultaneously allowing people involved in the product development process to link up and discuss this key aspect of successful engineering and provide pointers for the shape of things to come. The forum organizes regular conventions and publishes specialist studies.
Competent advice lays a foundation for the successful implementation of innovations. Independent of the field of technology or management concerned, we provide all kinds and sizes of companies with access to the right kind of specialist or team of experts – quickly and flexibly.
The broad spectrum of know-how available in the Steinbeis Network generates a variety of synergies. As well as acting as a catalyst, our consultants develop financially viable and technically feasible concepts in close collaboration with the client, also providing hands-on support with implementation. Our aim is to unveil the full potential of solutions to each problem and facilitate further development, thus expanding in-house know-how in the long term. Our portfolio of services ranges from short consulting sessions to comprehensive corporate tasks and project-based consultations.

Developing and expanding employee skills and competences is central to the competitiveness of a company. Our Steinbeis Network helps businesses by providing access to know-how and techniques through practical, business-related training and continuing professional development (CPD). The teaching methods revolve around actual requirements, ranging from seminars to workshops, in-house training and even complete degree programs. Our experts prepare people for the challenges faced in key fields of technology and know-how sharing.
