Scientific exchange plays an extraordinarily important role for us in order to achieve the greatest possible social benefit. The platform for this exchange is an annual symposium that takes place alternately at the Steinbeis Foundation headquarters and at different international locations. Current research results are discussed and evaluated in lectures, forums and panel discussions. The knowledge gained here serves as a basis and stimulus for new research approaches.

The symposium is closely linked to the scientific journal “Leadership, Education, Personality: An Interdisciplinary Journal” which we publish at Springer. Every year, a call for papers invites to publications. More information on the journal can be found at

The next symposium will take place on 29th and 30th October 2020  in Bolzano (Italy) organized by Eurac Research. The topic is: “Digitalization: Futures of Democracy and Economy“.
