What our customers say
„At the international Women4Energy conference, I was able to make many new and interesting contacts that have broadened my perspective on the energy world. I met some great personalities who give me new courage and hope for the future and the fight against climate change.“Dr. Aneta Strzalka, Stuttgart University of Applied Sciences, Centre for Sustainable Energy Technology
„In November 2017, for the second time, we organised Energy4u at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences. For this second edition, we cooperated with Steinbeis 2i GmbH, who contributed their successful ConnectIdeas2Business. Through their involvement, we were able to significantly upgrade the event to Energy4u: ConnectIdeas2Business, a marketplace for solutions in the energy sector. Both in the conception and in the acquisition of exhibitors, speakers and participants, the cooperation with Steinbeis 2i was excellent.“Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil.

What our customers say
„The complexity of EU calls and how to find my way around them to write a good application was explained to me in a very good, structured and technically sound way. The group work was very important for me. Examples of successful applications, exercises and the subsequent discussions with other participants gave me ideas that I would never have thought of myself. As a conclusion, I would say that, with such a well-structured application, I now easily leave two thirds of the applicants behind me.“Matthias Rapf, University of Stuttgart, Institute for Sanitary Engineering, Water Quality and Waste Management
„The interactive trainings of Steinbeis 2i GmbH form a sound basis for my own work on applications and in projects. The concrete examples from practice as well as the expertise of the trainers helped me a lot to get a better feeling for the sometimes-complex expectations of the EU.“Christian Engelhardt, Interplast Kunststoffe GmbH/Infinex Group
„In the certificate course, I learned what matters in the application process and what the specific criteria of the European Commission are. The three-phase concept of the course with a high level of practical relevance allowed me to consolidate what I had learned and to apply it directly in my professional environment. The trainers from Steinbeis 2i GmbH were very competent and you can feel that they come from practical experience. They know first-hand the problems that arise when applying for and implementing European projects.“Tom Kurdewan, Research Associate Industrial Engineering, Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University
„The SmartEnCity Academy was very helpful in facilitating the exchange of best smart city practices between different European cities. It served as an inspiration for Riga and brought us a good step closer to our goal of becoming the first Baltic climate-neutral capital city.“Nika Kotoviča, Stadt Riga
