Steinbeis is one of the world’s most successful service providers in the field of knowledge and technology transfer. Over 2,000 business enterprises have already been founded on the back of the Steinbeis platform. The outcome? A network of approximately 1,100 business enterprises. Most of these enterprises are legally separate companies, managing their business affairs independently and operating in the market under standalone financial arrangements. The Network currently draws on the know-how of 6,000 experts, who work with and on behalf of companies of all sizes, involving a variety of projects with a focus on issues in the fields of Research and Development, Consulting and Expert Reports, and Training and Continuing Professional Development – across all areas of technology and business administration. The potential of our network to deliver transfer services, i.e., its technology and consulting competence, is a direct function of requirements in different markets. By continually setting up new Steinbeis Enterprises, we add to and build our expertise in the areas where there is customer demand.
Successful entrepreneurship in the field of transfer requires fine-tuned organizational structures. Business enterprises in the Steinbeis Network benefit from the assumption of third-party liability for their projects, simultaneously enjoying entrepreneurial freedom within a powerful skills and competence network – a central framework that provides organizational security underpinned by the Steinbeis brand, which has stood for quality and professionalism since 1971.

Collaboration works smoothly between science and academia on the one hand, and business and individual companies on the other.
