About the partnership

In a country as Vietnam and after more than 10 years of cooperation, the country strategy identified deepening of national Vietnamese university cooperation and participation in regional, international networks around strategic themes as a priority. The themes of food security and agricultural development continue to be crucial for Vietnam. Through the creation of a 'bioscience for food'-network and bringing together a series of related efforts of the successful IUC-programme (1998-2008) VLIR-UOS hopes to extend its impact in the country.

A Network programme, to be coordinated by Can Tho University, was created around the theme of Biosciences for Food. Next to the upleveling of national/regional cooperation in the related area, the main goals are to develop curricula for joint degree MSc courses in aquaculture and food technology. More specifically the programme will create in both subproject domains joint graduate programmes and research based education. The Network programme will group the knowledge and know-how of 5 Vietnamese universities in the two disciplines: Can Tho University, Hue University, Research Institute of Aquaculture N° 2, Hanoi University of Agriculture and Nha Trang University.
