The ZHAW moves in international arenas, working across borders and intensifying cooperation with foreign partners in all disciplines, for staff and students. We use the synergies that develop from collaboration with training and research institutions on all continents. The ZHAW values its regional anchorage in the greater Zurich area, a hub in the global networked world. We are convinced that our society needs more actors who are competent and responsible, who work in networks to generate knowledge, and who recognise cultural diversity as value-added. The International Affairs Office therefore supports the members of the international ZHAW community and their foreign partners.
Leading House South Asia and Iran
In spring 2017, the ZHAW became the Leading House for bilateral research cooperation with partner institutions in South Asia and Iran. On behalf of the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), the ZHAW promotes collaborative research activities with the major scientific institutions in this region.
Since 2008, the Swiss federal government has extended the focus of its international science policy to non-European countries that show significant scientific and technological potential. With currently six partner regions outside Europe, the government’s goal is to expand and strengthen science policy relations and cooperation. Each region is assigned a Leading House, which is responsible for coordinating the partnership.
The ZHAW promotes staff mobility for lecturers, research associates and assistants and for technical and operational staff for limited periods of time at one of our partner universities.
Studying and working at the ZHAW
The ZHAW supports students and researchers from EU countries who wish to spend a semester in Switzerland. Even though Switzerland is currently not a full member of «Erasmus+», the «Swiss European Mobility Programme» secures that exchanges and cooperation with European partner universities continue to flourish.
