The RoHan (Rostock-Hanoi) project is part of a new DAAD programme that will be funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (Bundesministerium für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung, BMZ) from 2016 to 2020. Under this programme, six SDG Graduate Schools will be established around the world, one of which is located in Hanoi. It is a cooperative venture between Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Vietnam National University, the University of Rostock and the Rostock-based Leibniz Institute for Catalysis. Its focus is on education and research into the subject of catalysis as a key to sustainable resource management. The official opening ceremony of the RoHan – Rostock-Hanoi DAAD SDG Graduate School took place at HUST on 18 November 2016.
