Moreover, Zuyd cooperates intensively - across the boundaries of disciplines and organizations - with businesses, (knowledge) institutions from various sectors, and governments, based on the conviction that the 21st century not only requires knowledge, but also the ability to apply that knowledge in practice. Both within and outside the (Eu) region.

Zuyd's roots and expertise go back more than a hundred years. Based on this strength and in line with the strengths of the (Eu)region, Zuyd's education and research focuses on the themes of Valuable Neighborhoods, Healthy Society, Circular Production and Future-proof Business. With 1,700 employees, Zuyd offers 13,000 students fifty Bachelor's and Master's programs with offices in Heerlen, Sittard-Geleen and Maastricht.
