• Since 2016, the ZukunftsRegion Westpfalz has been honoring individuals who have made a special contribution to the development of the West Palatinate...

Newsletter 1/2017

In March 2017 the first issue of the ZukunftsRegion Westpfalz newsletter was published. The e-mail newsletter will come out on a regularly basis and inform subscribers about the latest news from our association and the region. Including news on current projects or memership development as well as invitations to events. The newsletter can be subsribed free of charge via the ZRW website. Unfortunately, the newsletter is not available in English at the moment.

International School

We are delighted to announce that after three years of planning, the International School Kaiserslautern is due to open its doors in August 2017. The final location will be announced at the end of January.

The International School Kaiserslautern will be offering education according to the highest international standards to develop inquiring, compassionate, knowledgeable young people. The school will start as a Kindergarten and Primary school, accepting enrollments for students aged 4 -11 years old (pre-school until grade six).

Wirtschaftsge(h)spräch on top of the Donnersberg mountain

On November 11, 2016, we invited round again for the next Westpfälzer Wirtschaftsge(h)spräch – Wirtschaftsge(h)spräch means representatives of economics are having a conversation while going for a walk. It took place on top of the Donnersberg mountain in rough November weather. Despite the damp and cold weather around 20 representatives of economics, science, politics and civil society wandered over the mystical and foggy Donnersberg following ancient celtic footmarks.

Special supplement published in the RHEINPFALZ in October

On Saturday, October 29, 2016, our 13th special supplement was published in the RHEINPFALZ. The 24-paged supplement is issued three times a year with 85,000 copies in the West Palatinate region on Saturdays.

The main topic of this year’s October supplement is the digital infrastructure in the West Palatinate. Several articles gave information about mobile communications, broad band etc. Furthermore you will find other current regional themes in the supplement, e. g. the Westpfalz Award.

Westpfalz Wireless

There is free wi-fi access at increasing numbers of locations in Germany, but it is still uncommon. Until now, free wi-fi has predominantly been found in cities like Berlin or Hamburg. With support from the ZRW, over time, more comprehensive, free wi-fi networks are being set up. In doing so, the West Palatinate is one of the pioneers in this field, is successfully presenting itself as an advanced, technology-oriented region and is creating a practical service for its residents and guests.


Business and work network meet-ups

One of the most important goals of ZRW is to strengthen the exchange between the players in the West Palatinate. Therefore, together with the Agentur für Arbeit Kaiserlautern-Pirmasens [Federal Employment Agency Kaiserslautern-Pirmasens], we regularly organise an exchange on the topics of business and the job market. In addition to ZRW and the employment agency, the business development agencies for the counties and district-free cities in the West Palatinate participate.
