What is RoHan?

The project RoHan is part of a new DAAD scheme, generously funded by the Federal Ministry for economic co-operation and development (BMZ), on the implementation of “SDG Graduate
Schools”. The University of Rostock and the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis as well as the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) and the VNU University of Science are co-operating
to implement the ROHAN Graduate School from 2016 till 2020. The aim of the project is to foster the development and establishment of catalysis technologies and processes through the training of qualified Vietnamese scientists able to assume leadership positions in both industry and academia. Focusing on rightful high-quality education and promoting life-long learning opportunities for all, as well as promoting gender equality and empowering women could have a strong impact on the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2030.
