We cordially invite alumni from the region to take part in this event.

Alumni of German universities – including DAAD alumni – from Vietnam, Lao PDR, Cambodia and Myanmar are welcome to register.

Please complete this online form to register.
Registration deadline: 15.04.2018

The registrations will be considered on a first-come first-serve basis, as there are limited slots for each region and country.

Note: Due to new policy, the DAAD can only cover travel and accommodation costs for DAAD alumni. DAAD alumni are people who have received a scholarship by the DAAD for at least three months (and not within a DAAD-sponsored university partnership).

Non-DAAD alumni are also welcome to register and take part in the event, but unfortunately their travel and accommodation costs cannot be covered by the DAAD.

Selected DAAD alumni not coming from Hanoi will receive a travel allowance from the DAAD based on their home region / country. The following lump sums for the complete journey will be applied per person from:

  • Hanoi: 0 VND / 0 €
  • Northern Vietnam, outside Hanoi: 500.000 VND / ca. 18 €
  • Central Vietnam region: 3.400.000 VND / ca. 120 €
  • Southern Vietnam region: 4.000.000 VND / ca. 145 €
  • Laos: 6.000.000 VND / ca. 215 €
  • Cambodia: 9.500.000 VND / ca. 340 €
  • Myanmar: 6.500.000 VND / ca. 230 €

In addition, the DAAD will cover the accommodation costs for the selected DAAD alumni from the above-mentioned regions (not relevant for participants from Hanoi) for 2 nights from 25th May to 27th May 2018 at the conference hotel.

An interesting contest – the Falling Walls Lab Vietnam (a Science Slam) – will also take place on the day before: at 4:30pm on 25th May 2018 at our DAAD office. You are welcome to take part in this event – as audience, or even as participant.
In this contest, young scientists and entrepreneurs will present their innovative ideas or research projects – in just 3 minutes. The first prize is a trip to Berlin, Germany. Please find more information about the Falling Walls Lab here.
