The ZHAW contributes to increasing community integration and inclusion in our society. To this end, it promotes social, organisational and technological innovation.
Being integrated means participating in society – in education and training, on the job market, in leisure activities and in politics. It means being involved in shaping life in society. The societal transformation that globalisation is bringing about presents a challenge for the integration of many people. The ZHAW is meeting this challenge with its interdisciplinary research strategy. Findings from social sciences and humanities and from cultural, economic and environmental research are bundled together and, in conjunction with information and communication technologies, they contribute to new approaches emerging at the ZHAW to increase social integration.
