3 Wien, March 2006 The University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Goerlitz Location Zittau Görlitz 1

4 Wien, March 2006 Facts Faculties: Architecture and Infrastructure; Energy and Technical Systems; Information and Computer Sciences; Process Engineering; Mathematics/Natural Sciences ; Social Transformation Processes; Languages; Business and Management Students (2005): Employees: 405 Area: m² (Zittau) m² (Goerlitz) R&D: ca. 4.2 Mio p.a. (ca. 40 % environmental related)

5 Wien, March 2006 Locations Zittau Goerlitz IT, Social Sci. Engineering, Nat. Sci., Economics

6 Wien, March 2006 From EMS to Sustainable Development Time schedule Environmental Management System 1996Senate Desicion 1997Working Group EMS 1999Validation and Registration according EMAS 1 st EG 1836/93 (EMAS) - March nd 761/2001 (EMAS II) - March 2002 External Supervisory Audit - March 2003 External Supervisory Audit - March rd EG 761/ January 2005 External Supervisory Audit - March

7 Wien, March 2006 Important goals: Energy and Water Materials and Waste Information/Com munication Education and Research Sustainable Development Operation Integration in Research and Education

8 Wien, March 2006 Example: Education and Research Diploma Course: Ecology and Environmental Protection (since 1994) Approx immatriculations p. a. (ca. 550 students so far) Ca. 70% successful graduations, approx. 80% find jobs Course: Fundamentals of Ecology & Environmental Protection Issues: Nuclear Waste Disposal - German and International Strategies, Re-cultivation of a strip-mine, Efficient Energy Use, Global Energy Supply & Climate Change, Water - the Source and Basis of Life, Introduction to Population Ecology and Ecosystems, Environmentally-Oriented Business Leadership, Environmental Management at the University Ecological Construction, Intro to German and European Environmental Law Sustainable Development - Concept and Strategies

9 Wien, March 2006 University's Guideline In early 2004, a development agreement was reached between Hochschule Zittau/Görlitz and the Saxony Ministry of Science and Arts until the year 2010 entitled: Sustainable Development – University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Goerlitz in the 21st Century Sciences:engineering and natural sciences social sciences business sciences

10 Wien, March 2006 Comprehension to Sustainability SD may have different meanings due to different regional situations and needs Institution of HE are particularly responsible to assist in both social and economic regional development processes Suitful tools may be IMS, networking and SME oriented R & D Best practice examples given by institutions of HE may help to stimulate regional growth and to counteract negative demography 3

11 Wien, March 2006 Comprehension : The Zittau/Goerlitz Commitment to SD Sustainable Development Core Competences (equivalent to Faculties) Best Practice Examples EMSNetwork (Neisse University, BUP) Research (External Funding) Energy Efficiency IMS Recycling Techn. Surface Chem. & Biotech ?

12 Wien, March 2006 Experience and Expectations Networking Network Neisse University 4 MSc EHS & Risk Management

13 Wien, March 2006 Experience and Expectations Networking Network Baltic University Programme Contribution to EM-module Integration of BUP-modules in regular courses Int. conference Sustainable Chemistry and Biotechnology February, 2005 Development of a new master-level module jointly with TU Wroclaw (PL) and TU Liberec (CZ) on Sustainable Chemistry and Biotechnology Zittau SD seminar 2004 (Prof. Walter Leal Filho)

14 Wien, March 2006 Experience and Expectations projects, studies, consulting Energy Efficiency Potential and needs of action for a concept to increase energy efficiency in the Fed. State of Saxony Earth bound cooling of industrial process heat – concept and demonstration Earth bound cooling installation for demonstration and teaching

15 Wien, March 2006 Experience and Expectations projects, studies, consulting Management (EM, QM, IMS,..) Regional industries, especially SME´s Public Authorities, e.g. district offices, ministries Environmental Technology Waste Management; RC-Techniques, e.g. Sort of plastics according to thermal properties Development of diffusion blocking and bio-compatible hard material surface coating to apply at the keyhole surgery Surface Chemistry and Biotechnology, e.g. Development of diffusion blocking and bio-compatible hard material surface coating to apply at the keyhole surgery

16 Wien, March 2006 SUMMERY Education in the range of the 3 sciences, R&D, continuing education, areas of expertise / specializations (EMS, Networking etc.) Regional distinctions, activities and possibilities, co-operations Constant touch to economy, politics and social players … Actions speak louder than words. Award as Decade-Project

17 Wien, March 2006 Thanks for your attention. Questions and issues to be discussed Concepts of Sustainability in HE – as management tool for the organization or as integrative curricula concept - best practice vs. common sense SD? Educational networking an exchange boards (platforms) Role of SD in international accreditation and ranking Students activities (concepts for integration/ to warm up and motivate students for specific activities) Contact: Dipl.-Kff.
