Guiding principles of the Center for Lifelong Learning
We are the Center for Lifelong Learning of the University of Augsburg. Our interdisciplinary team of experts assists individuals as well as organizations in their professional development and offers them individual customer liaison and support. For companies we provide products that are custom-made to their individual demands.As an educational affiliate we serve our private customers with offers up-to-date on scientific levels. With our innovative and yet practical approach we set quality standards - quality, which can be documented to the outside by obtaining a university certificate or an academic degree.
With over fourthy years of experience and our strong national and international partners, we are committed to ensure your personal sustained success.We work on the knowledge transfer between research and practice - in both directions.On the one hand by doing so, we can make the level of knowledge and latest scientific results also available to the non-university environment namely by providing this information in seminars, congresses, workshops and other means of information.
On the other hand we communicate interests in co-operation and experiences, transfer practical questions and problems to appropriate higher education institutions and make them available for research and apprenticeship.We want to enforce further education and knowledge transfer as a university task. Scientific development in general and knowledge and technology transfer in particular are, in addition to research and teaching, the third of the core tasks of university. Function off and objective for the ZWW is to assist the university in realising this core task.
Thereby it is important to edit current subject-specific knowledge, communication and professional skills and also methodical knowledge from university research in a way that it can be conveyed to working people in responsible positions to successfully solve their practical problems.
Education and knowledge are for the common good. Further education and knowledge transfer aim on economic and technical efficiency.But economic and technical efficiency are no ends in themselves. They are used in accordance with the motto of the University "Scientia et Conscientia" - with scientific accuracy in social responsibility – deepening the quality of life in a free and sustainable society.Knowledge and technology transfer makes the dialogue with the industry a significant contribution to the development of innovative technologies that lead to competitive products, and thus to secure the business location Germany.
Our two guiding principles:
- Get ahead through knowledge and know why.
- ZWW.... because there´s a lot more ability in you!
