You have an idea for a project but you don’t know who to partner with? We have a large network of international stakeholders from science and industry who are active in the field of research and innovation.
Our network includes contacts
- in Bavaria
Primarily universities, universities of applied sciences and small and medium-sized enterprises but also public institutions, government agencies, non-university research organisations and large corporations based in Bavaria. The numerous Bavarian Research Associations as well as Bavarian clusters are an outstanding network for excellent project partners. We support the network activities of the associations at EU level through a liaison office.
- in Germany and other European countries
We continue to expand this network by participating in numerous events – for example international brokerage events and trade fairs –, by identifying important multipliers, collaborating with important cooperation partners, and providing application support for European research and innovation consortia.
Especially close contacts exist with several important partner regions of Bavaria, which are managed via the scientific coordination office (WKS) within BayFOR:
- with the Canadian provinces of Québec and Alberta
- with the regions of Georgia (USA), Shandong (China), São Paulo (Brazil), Upper Austria and Western Cape (South Africa)
- with Israel
- with Africa
Moreover, BayFOR is a partner in the EU-funded Enterprise Europe Network, the largest advisory network in the world for SMEs. This gives us access to the network’s international innovation and transfer database with cooperation opportunities from all over the world.
We seek and provide contact with project partners free of charge.
