We value networking. We cooperate with more than 400 universities, companies, government agencies and non-profit organizations around the world.


Carefully selected and cultivated partnerships form the basis for both knowledge sharing and cooperation in education and training in order to provide appropriate services and progress in research and development.

ZHAW International

The ZHAW moves in international circles, working across borders and intensifying cooperation with foreign partners in all disciplines, for both staff and students. We utilize the synergies resulting from collaboration with educational and research institutions around the globe. At the same time, the ZHAW values its regional position in the greater Zurich area, a hub in our globally connected 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 an advantage. Therefore, the International Affairs Office supports the members of the ZHAW community and their foreign partners.
