German-Vietnamese Science Day – 2023 in Da Nang


26 - 27 April 2023

Location(s): NOVOTEL DANANG PREMIER HAN RIVER, 36 Bach Dang Street, Hai Chau District, Danang city, Vietnam

Organizer: BMBF and MOST


In April, 26-27th 2023, the German-Vietnamese Science Day (GVSD) will take place in Da Nang.

The conference is jointly organised by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Vietnamese Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). It will bring together scientists and delegates from both ministries, representatives from politics, business, administration, and associations to exchange views on current research and opportunities in German-Vietnamese science, technology and innovation (STI).

The forum offers disciplinary, inter- and transdisciplinary dialogues and networking.

On the first day, several workshops on different topics will enable exchange with experts from both countries, Germany and Vietnam. Important insights will be shared and recommendations for addressing challenges in the respective thematic areas will be developed. Scientists from various Vietnamese German research projects will be actively involved, e.g. out of funding initiatives CLIENT, Sustainable Development of urban regions (SURE), Bioeconomy International.

Day 2 aims to raise awareness among different groups: On the one hand, policy makers, local administration and other stakeholders will be informed about best practices and the needs of science. On the other hand, science and industry will learn about the broader policy landscape, strategic objectives and upcoming funding opportunities through cross-dialogues and presentations.

The expected outcomes are

– Promotion of German and Vietnamese cooperation opportunities in the fields of science, technology and innovation (STI) and higher education (HEI) as well as funding opportunities

– Needs for future research, calls for proposals and other cooperation activities will be elaborated and discussed

– Examples of German-Vietnamese research and higher education-science-industry cooperation will highlight success factors and experiences
