The University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz has reliable regional and transregional contacts to support education and research. To extend these contacts, the centre for knowledge and technology transfer (ZWT) was founded in 2008. The main tasks of ZWT are on the one hand to forward requests which are addressed to the University to the responsiple departments and on the other hand to impart the educational and research achievements from the University into the region. In the past years ZWT evolved to a sustainable service centre, which is available for both, partners from outside the University and the support of lecturers of the University. Many project initiatives were started to optimize the study conditions, to bring the further education of the University on a higher level and to support the transfer of knowledge and technology. The ZWT belongs to the rectorate of the university. One project of the ZWT is the SMEs-internationalization project Enterprise Europe Network.
