Steinbeis 2i GmbH (S2i) was founded in 2016 as a 100 % spin-off of Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum (SEZ), a non-profit organisation within Steinbeis Innovation gGmbH (SIG). S2i has taken over all staff members and competences from SEZ, so that the rich SEZ experience and expertise are fully guaranteed.

  • Assistance in the exploitation of research results (IPR issues, market studies, business plans and models, exploitation workshops, etc.), in transnational technology transfer, in the stimulation and support of the innovation process in industrial companies and in providing professional training.
  • Advice for policy makers and administrations on regional future scenarios, on innovation and cluster policy issues and support of knowledge exchange at the European level.
  • Expert knowledge in communication and dissemination of research and innovation projects and their results.
  • Facilitation of networking among innovation actors, e.g. through the professional and competent organisation of European conferences and events.
