STEINBEIS – INSTITUTIONAL CONNECT
Innovation . Academia . Steinbeis
Established in the current form in 1971, Steinbeis Germany was established with the intention of creating a bridge between academia and industry- to transfer academic and research findings from Academia and research into Industry. Traditionally, this transfer was happening very slowlyand Steinbeis wished to fashion itself as a catalyst in this process. Our credentials can also be established by the fact that many of the Directors of the Steinbeis Centres are Professors themselves in the various German universities.
Due to the academic nature of the Steinbeis Centres, many of the Steinbeis Centres have evolved into independent Research Centres themselves. These Steinbeis Centres have managed to create a niche for themselves in their respective specialisations and have also taken up names identifying with their specialisation. The complete list of these Steinbeis Centres in Germany can be viewed in the following Link:

More than 1000 of the 1138 Steinbeis centres in the world today are located in Germany itself.
The successful expansion of the Steinbeis network in Germany enabled consideration of its expansion abroad, which began to be done with mutual benefit to the host country and the Steinbeis Germany network. The pioneering venture of Steinbeis into India was undertaken in 2009 by 2E Knowledge Ventures Private Limited, under the guidance of its Director Mr. Vineet K Goyal. The Centre was christened ‘Steinbeis Centre for Technology Transfer India’. The Centre focused on being a Centre for Technology Transfer between global Steinbeis Network and India- connecting Indian firms who require the technology with the latest Technology from Germany and other countries., and also setting-up an Indian Steinbeis Network.
