Future IT specialists, social educational workers and cultural managers study at the university of Zittau-Görlitz located at the Neiße river with view to Zgorzelec.
In addition to that, there are many options for learning at the adult education centre, the public library and several private providers.
Besides the university Zittau-Görlitz, the European town is home to many research institutes. Just in 2019, the German-Polish Casus-Institute was founded. There, researchers will study on complex systems such as global climate, the structure of stars and planets, traffic in metropolises, and metabolism in the human body. Part of the work is made possible thanks to enormously powerful digital tools. Thus, complex developments can be simulated and visualised in far better ways, allowing for more reliable forecasts, such as the analysis of exact data regarding socio-economic effects of climate change on Saxony.
The Senckenberg Society for biodiversity has been seated in Görlitz for a longer time. The society helps to pursue the 200 years-tradition of natural science in Görlitz, as studies on biodiversity, systematic and ecology on animals and plants continues.
Further notable research institutes are Fraunhofer, which runs a learn lab for cyber security together with the university, as well as the interdisciplinary centre for ecological and revitalising urban restructuring. The IZS is a cooperative research institute for ecological spatial development of the TU Dresden.
