Since 2006, Strategische Partnerschaft Sensorik e.V.  has bundled the existing sensor technology expertise on behalf of the Free State of Bavaria in order to sustainably strengthen the innovative power and future viability of companies and institutions. As a regional network for the industry, we provide operational and strategic support to members and partners.


Platform for Business, Science and Politics

The sensor technology network has established itself as a platform for the exchange of business, science and politics across national borders. Every year, around 200 events are held to bundle the know-how of the industry, expand it across disciplines and thus create the basis for new cooperations.

Exchanging Experience and Knowledge

Meet entrepreneurs, developers and service providers, universities and research institutions along the entire value chain of sensor technology.

Generating and networking knowledge
that secures the technological lead!


Gain in-depth insights into the sensor technology industry and its players. Best practices from our network provide you with orientation to better assess your own position and your market value.

The quarterly Technology Forum is an established meeting place for sensor technology experts. Following impulses and lectures by leading experts in our industry and science, you can continue the discussion on thematic islands on selected topics.

Current technological developments are the subject of the thematically focused circles of experts. The intensive exchange between the network members in these closed circles results, among other things, in new cooperation projects. Experts cover the entire value chain - from research to the application and implementation of technologies for end users.

With the annual Human Resources Expert Forum, we support cross-industry networking in our region and enable sensor technology players to expand their knowledge beyond the boundaries of technology. Short impulses from nationwide experts and best practices from the modern working world as well as interactive communication units characterize this event format.

Every three months we take a look behind the scenes in the cross-sector event series "DiaLogisch Praxis-Treff für Organisationsentwicklung": we let companies tell how they are already implementing current HR trends. Our speakers are practical experts and pioneers in the field of modern working cultures. Following the lectures, the experts will be available for exchange.

Lectures, company visits and hands-on workshops: Five days give an in-depth insight into the multifaceted application areas of modern sensor systems.


Innovation Through Networking

Supported by the network management, more than 140 innovation projects in the field of sensor technology have been initiated between the network actors by now, and project volumes of around 40 million have been generated, a good half of these were acquired as government funding.
