In eigener Sache:
Wir möchten Sie auf unseren digitalen Vietnam-Workshop im Rahmen der DAAD-Netzwerkkonferenz am 23. Juni von 09:00 – 11:00 Uhr aufmerksam machen. In dem Workshop möchten wir
- Chancen und Potenziale für Wissenschaftskooperationen mit Vietnam in den Fokus stellen;
- Austausch über praktische Kooperationserfahrungen ermöglichen;
- eine Plattform für Vernetzung der an Vietnam interessierten Hochschulen anbieten.
Wenn Sie Zeit und Interesse haben, loggen Sie sich bitte hier ein.
Zudem haben wir ein kurzes Video zu den potentialen des Hochschulstandorts Vietnam erstellt, dass Sie auf dem Youtube-Kanal des DAAD unter https://youtu.be/0EhTvvfUaWA finden können.
Wir verabschieden uns damit in die Sommerpause und wünschen allen einen schönen und erholsamen Urlaub!
