This Is the Network Calling!

A look back at the 2018 Steinbeis Day

The platform provided by Steinbeis makes us a reliable partner for company startups, business projects, and people who want to apply their expertise to the overlapping areas of science and academia on the one hand, and trade and industry on the other. The annual Steinbeis Day highlights how important the personal exchange of ideas is for this work within and with networks. As in past years, a variety of Steinbeis employees, partners, and friends of the Steinbeis Network met up in Stuttgart on the last Friday in September, and this time they were greeted at the Steinbeis House for Management and Technology (SHMT) by glorious late-summer weather.

Networking is mainly about communication, as became obvious when you entered the door at the Steinbeis Day at the SHMT. The building was like a beehive, with people busily renewing old and long-neglected contacts, meeting new people, and immediately engaging in conversation about this or the other project. To allow visitors to take a good look at current projects involving digital solutions and Industry 4.0, the Steinbeis Day also organized a Theme Zone. This was an ideal opportunity to talk to experts from the Ferdinand Steinbeis Institute, the Industry 4.0 Transfer Platform, and TZM GmbH.

In addition to this open round of communication, another key area of focus at this year’s event was a series of workshop sessions looking at a variety of different topics. To allow visitors to keep talking about the topics after the Steinbeis Day, the speakers are still available for further discussion. To contact the speakers, go to

And each Steinbeis Day is only a precursor of the next Steinbeis Day. The Friday for Steinbeisers to keep clear for the following year is September 27. We look forward to seeing you again, this time at the Hospitalhof Stuttgart.
