Academy Collaborations

We are bringing our expertise directly to students and mentors, offering practical touchpoints and impulses to deepen their academic knowledge. This includes group projects like guest lectures, workshops or excursions as well as individual offerings like scholarships, internships, thesis advice and research support. Furthermore, we provide guidance to professors and faculties in planning and adapting their curricula to industry standards. Knowledge transfer goes both ways for us: To benefit the professional development of our teams, we are always interested in academic guest lectures in our studios.
