A research centre at the Vietnamese-German University
The Vietnamese-German University (VGU) is a joint project between Vietnam and Germany with the goal to set up a research-orientated university in Vietnam. It had its official opening celebrations in September 2008 in Ho Chi Minh City.
Under the framework of VGU the Technische Universität Darmstadt (TUD), Germany, and the University of Transport and Communica¬tions (UTC), Vietnam, decided to continue and to strengthen their existing cooperation and to establish a Transport Research Centre in Vietnam.
The VGTRC is funded by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and the Arts (State of Hessen) as well as by scholarships of the Ministry of Education and Training (Vietnam).
Under the guidance of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Manfred Boltze and Dr.-Ing. Khuat Viet Hung young researchers will work in the different fields of traffic and transport at VGTRC, and aim for their doctor degree.
The VGTRC aims to strengthen the relationship between Germany and Vietnam and the scientific exchange, as well as to support young researchers gaining more knowledge and qualification.
Research needs the exchange with researchers and practitioners.
