Apart from educating "his" students and collaborating with research partners, Joerg Baumeister's passion is the development and execution of large international consultancy, research, and construction projects

Reference partners of previous projects include NEOM - THE LINE, the World Bank, United Nations / UNHCR, African Union, European Union, NGOs and GOs like the GIZ, the Australian Research Council, various Ministries for Research, Housing, Tourism and several city councils (examples please see below).

Since December 2022, he is in the mobilisation phase of NEOM - THE LINE as the newest and one of the most thrilling projects. Beginning of 2022, his successful CRC Blue Economy grant application for the development of a patented offshore aquaculture structure has attracted $2 Mio for phase 1 (conceptional development).
