We implement targeted projects in Germany and abroad on behalf of third parties.

Thanks to our many years of experience in the area of business and science development, we are a competent and sought-after partner to ministries and institutions in Germany and abroad as a project service provider. We currently implement projects on behalf of Baden-Württemberg’s Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Tourism, the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung foundation and the European Commission. Our active role as part of these measures underpins our internationalisation competency – ensuring added value for Baden-Württemberg as a location.

Baden-Württemberg Stiftung

We carry out several programmes on behalf of Baden-Württemberg Stiftung. We are responsible for processing the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for University Students – helping the foundation to promote an international exchange of especially qualified students from Germany and abroad. Every year, around 1,500 scholarship holders from Baden-Württemberg and abroad are given the opportunity to spend up to a year in a different country, progress their studies or scientific career and get valuable experience for their further personal development.

Other programmes that we manage on behalf of Baden-Württemberg Stiftung include the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for University Students (BWS plus), the Walter-Hallstein-Programme and the Eliteprogramm für Postdocs.

With our active role as an initiator of the various programmes of Baden-Württemberg Stiftung, at BW_i we contribute to enhancing Baden-Württemberg’s attractiveness for high potentials and recruiting them as highly qualified staff for universities, research institutes and companies in Baden-Württemberg.

European Commission

BW_i acts as a service provider for two projects on behalf of the European Commission. Firstly, we are a member of the Enterprise Europe Network Baden-Württemberg (EEN-BW). The EEN is a European network with the aim of supporting collaboration, technology transfer and strategic partnerships for small and medium-sized businesses. As part of this project, we can offer internationalisation services to companies and organisations. Secondly, we are a project partner to Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. This programme funded by the European Commission promotes an exchange between start-up entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized companies – and helps BW_i to bring young talent to the German Southwest.
