The CIE conducts several projects in the fields of entrepreneurship research and management. Many activities are project based and depend on an external funding by third-parties, institutions such as the Thuringian State Government, the German Federal Government, or the European Union. Since 1999, quite a few public funded projects have been successfully completed. Additionally, the university itself supports the CIE with  basic funding of its own.

The CIE has been involved in the following national and international programs:

  • EXIST - University-based Business Startups
  • Fact Finding Mission (DAAD)
  • Leonardo Partnership

Example of Good Practice
In 2009 as well as in 2013, the OECD recognized the CIE projects in the field of entrepreneurship education as a good practice initiative. The CIE was invited to present their activities at a workshop as well as to publish it in a booklet.
