Vietnam is a long-standing and very important partner country of VLIR-UOS. From 2003 to 2021 VLIR-UOS spent over € 29.6 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 programme in Biosciences for food together with 5 Vietnamese universities are the cornerstones of the Vietnam country programme. A new IUC partnership with Quy Nhon University (QNU) is currently phasing in and will start full funding as of 2022.
A TEAM-project with QNU and KU Leuven came to an end, recently. Watch their testimonials:
