About Vietnam

There is a longstanding history of cooperation between Vietnam and the Flemish higher education institutions. After nearly 20 years of successful cooperation, Vietnam continues to be a key partner country in our portfolio. Since 2003, we have spent over € 24 million in cooperation with Vietnam, including three long-term Institutional University Cooperation (IUC) programmes with Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Can Tho University (CTU) and Hue University (HU).

The ongoing IUC programme with HU and a national Network in Biosciences for food together with 5 Vietnamese universities are the cornerstones of the Vietnam country programme.
