STEINBEIS – TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER
Innovation . Technology . Transfer
Technology is applied science, and as opposed to pure science, deals in the direct application of research into the production or improvement of goods and services.New technology is developed by universities, government research institutes, by the R&D sections of companies and sometimes even by individual scientists. Technology is knowledge that existswith the inventor or innovator. However, Technology transfer can take various forms. International technology transfer is especially more complex, because there are regulations that govern the transfer. Conversely, there are international agreements too which enable its smoother transfer.
Technology can be provided by one party to another by a training session on a screen, a demonstration on a prototype, by a design/diagram on paper, by animation in a computer or by written records containing formulas and description on how to set up the desired product or create the desired service.
Advanced Technology in many of the fields of Science and Engineering is still largely concentrated in western countries. Developing nations like India require such technology to develop on various fronts, whether we consider industrialization or in services ranging from the medical field to climate change mitigation. It is in this context that the work of Steinbeis becomes important.
About Technology Promotion
India . Global Technology Provider . SMEs
We provide assistance to international firms and organisations who wish to promote their technologies in India, or otherwise wish to partner with Indian firms. Interested parties only are encouraged to get in touch with us – one of the important aspects being there may be investments required for technology localization for Indian markets – with Indian partner.
We have been helping several SMEs to get the latest solutions to expand into new product ranges or make the delivery of their existing products/services more efficient.
India today offers ample opportunities for international business. Its thriving demography of working age youth, political stability and fast growing economy create a combination which no business should ignore.

- Smart Cities : India’s Smart Cities Mission, which was launched in 2015, aims to foster sustainable and citizen-friendly urban development in the country, through an initiative called 100 Smart Cities. One of the main reasons for this massive project was to alleviate the metropolises and make other cities more liveable with good job opportunities. Some financing will come from the central government and states, the rest from development banks, public-private partnerships, etc. In addition to the 100 Smart Cities, there are several cities with big aspirations and the desire to implement smart solutions, Smart Port cities coming up, as well as various private cities for which the developers are looking for smart solutions.
Other Government Initiatives :
Steinbeis India is partaking in includes Make in India, which was launched by Prime Minister Modi in 2014 with the goal to transform India into a global design and manufacturing hub; Skill India, which aims to improve technical training on a large scale to provide the cutting-edge industries fostered by Make in India with the manpower they need; and Digital India, whose official objective is to “transform India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy” through digital infrastructures, e-services and citizens’ education.
