become a partner

More than 5.000 partners promote and support the work of zdi.NRW. Do you also want to get involved? Here you can read which partnership would be best for you. 

There are four ways to collaborate: 

Cooperation with a
zdi network

As a regional company, would you like to get involved with young people, offer MINT projects and/or give schoolchildren an insight into your company? Then working with a regional zdi network is exactly the right way to get involved.

Cooperation with a
zdi students: indoor laboratory 

zdi student laboratories offer students the opportunity to experiment outside of school and experience STEM in a very practical way. Modern devices in particular enable children and young people to get a realistic impression of working in the MINT sector. The zdi student laboratory in your region is very pleased about the support from companies, schools and universities! 

Support of
zdi robot competition

Every year hundreds of students compete against each other in the zdi robot competition. Companies, universities and schools can support individual teams or support the entire organization as a central sponsor. 

commitment to
zdi Academy 

The zdi Academy, which has existed since 2013, offers regular training to the coordinators of zdi networks and zdi student laboratories. We are happy to offer seminars together with interested partners that are helpful for the zdi coordinators and their regional network work. Please contact us with your suggestions!
