The five Saxon universities of applied sciences (UAS) in Mittweida, Zwickau, Zittau/Görlitz, Dresden and
Leipzig have been collaborating in teaching and research since 2007. With the launch of Saxony5 they began to pool their expertise and resources to fulfil the Third Mission - the research-based transfer of knowledge based on a mutual strategy for the linking of knowledge flows in a Smart University Grid.
An important factor in our association are Co-Creation Labs combining the specialist skills and experimental capabilities of all involved UAS to work on topics that are relevant for the market and society, such as networked mobility. They serve the communication of needs and transfer offers, the demonstration of new technology, and the testing of new ideas and solutions.
