Steinbeis Network Romania | Structure

“The effective technology transfer in enterprises that is oriented on the economy is one of the main elements of national economic development.

R&D expenditures in Romania ranks on 65 in worldwide competition (Global Competitiveness Report 2019). Innovation capability of Romanian industry is poor. Nevertheless there are signs of changes. A higher level of competitiveness is attainable. We contribute with European‘s best practice and a profound understanding of the needs of the region. One major objective of STM is to stimulate university-industry collaboration in Romania. Steinbeis Transfer Management S.r.l. is the legal frame for Steinbeis Network Romania.

To be known: our Transfer Centers in Romania follow the principles of Steinbeis Network in Germany and are different from Danube Transfer Centers

Steinbeis Centers in Romania

Steinbeis Transfer Centers (STCs) see themselves as subcontractors – an “extended workbench” providing key development know-how. Working on a freelance basis or directly on the client’s premises, teams improve standard processes and input with new know-how. In the field of research, we take on assignments with clear tasks to be addressed. Our portfolio ranges from the optimization of products, processes and systems to the integration of emerging technology into existing applications and even completely new developments.

Based on a contract with Steinbeis in Germany, STM has the right to develop the network by founding Steinbeis Transfer Centers as legally dependent units of the STM.

Steinbeis provides a framework for all kinds of people working at a university or research establishment, enabling them to become entrepreneurs in ways that work in harmony with their full-time job, but also allowing them to apply their specialist knowledge directly to business activities. Collaboration based on close partnership – with universities or research establishments – is extremely important.
