About us

“The non-profit research institutes of the Zuse-Gemeinschaft are very close to the practice and generators of creative ideas for the German small- and medium-sized enterprises (SME). They translate the findings from science into applicable technology and thus prepare the ground for the innovations that make German SME successful worldwide."
