Knowledge for professionals

In addition to the R&D activities, the EZD is also active
on further education and knowledge transfer.

Our presential and online courses are based on the principle "theory meets practice". Participants benefit from the application-oriented lectures and practical tips for their daily work. During the event there is also the opportunity to discuss and elaborate solutions to your professional challenges and questions together with our experts.

Participant comment

"Within the framework of an in-house training conducted by the EZD, our employees were able to acquire new knowledge and also derive important impulses for their daily work. The trainer was very competent and had an extremely high level of knowledge in the area of formulation, dispersion and characterisation of suspensions. He responded very well to the individual questions of the participants. Overall, the in-house training was very successful and is definitely recommendable!"
