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.
The INUAS universities, FH Campus Wien University of Applied Sciences, Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences and ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences, are among the largest and most important providers of applied teaching and research in their respective countries. They work together on the priority theme “Urban and Regional Quality of Life”.
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.
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.
