About us

We established Steinbeis Danube Center as a non-profit Innovation Center. At the core of our mission lies a commitment to the European Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR), a visionary EU initiative aimed at addressing common challenges and capitalizing on shared opportunities within the Danube macro-region. By orchestrating and implementing pilot projects, we strive not only to pilot innovation but also to lay the groundwork for sustainable growth and development.

SDC is renowned for its adeptness in conceiving and executing pilot projects that pave the way for innovation and sustainable development. We are deeply committed to promoting entrepreneurship and to advancing sustainable development. We champion efforts to enhance the competitiveness of enterprises and institutions, spearheading initiatives that promote cutting-edge vocational training and educational programs. Through our work, we aim to bridge gaps and create opportunities in the Danube Region and beyond.

Steinbeis Innovation Centers (SIC) focus on projects of a charitable nature. Beyond that they are specialized in market and transfer-oriented, commissioned, development and transfer network research. The umbrella organization of all Steinbeis Innovation Centers is the Steinbeis Innovation gGmbH in Stuttgart, Germany.
