Office of the University of Greifswald in Vietnam: Joint Education and Training Centre (JETC), Hanoi
Established in: 2002
The Office of the University of Greifswald in Vietnam builds on a cooperation arrangement established in the 1960s and the resulting decades-old academic friendships. The Joint Education and Training Centre (JETC) was founded in 2002, since which time more than 80 Vietnamese students have studied or completed their doctoral training at Greifswald. The office is now managed by an alumna from this more recent cooperation arrangement. She helps researchers from Greifswald and Vietnam to make contact and get their research endeavours under way. She also helps to support the university partnerships with the universities of the Vietnam National University. Then as now, this cooperation has largely been made possible by project-based funds from various programmes offered by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and, since 2016, also by ERASMUS+ with partner countries.
