STEINBEIS – INDUSTRY CONNECT
Steinbeis India . Innovation . Network
Steinbeis India focus is on providing Innovation Services to Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). Often SMEs do not have the manpower and resources to network with the proven Technology providers in India and abroad by scouting internationally. Often Technology Scouting and Technology Transfer and Innovation (management) is a complex process which involves understanding of technology, socio-political issues, political and economic issues and lastly HR issues. SMEs are provided a one stop solution by aggregating various services- scouting for technology, being a point of contact with technology providers and where necessary and a platform to negotiate with Indian and Foreign firms / Institutions on business terms.
Steinbeis India has established its own network partners nationally and internationally. This has enabled us to offer expertise to clients even from countries that do not have Steinbeis Centres and connect with technology providers who may meet the peculiar requirements of Indian clients in terms of type of technology, pricing and other measures of technology transfer. We also have our own network of consultants in India, who are specialized in various fields and who are located in various cities in India.
Over the course of our existence since 2009, we have also established Associate Centres of Steinbeis India in various other locations in India, and just like in Germany, with their own specialisations. Indeed, we encourage our consultants to set up their own Centre after gaining a few years of experience of consulting with us. The most successful of these offshoots is the Steinbeis Solar Research Centre in Chennai, which has been involved in technology development, Project Consulting and Training in Solar PV Centres.
