Partner for businesses
Zuyd University of Applied Sciences is an important partner for Euroregional businesses and organisations as far as business courses, applied research, work placements and (graduation) projects are concerned. Through the University’s Research Centres, knowledge is exchanged between the University and the (Euro)region.
