UA forma vietnamitas experts-líderes em transferência de conhecimento e tecnologia
Throughout March and April, within the scope of the VETEC project, six professors from various Vietnamese universities, who work on transfer processes and technology valorisation, are being trained at the University of Aveiro in the field of capacity building in Knowledge and Technology Transfer - KTT. Throughout these two months, the Vietnamese professors will visit some institutions that are successful models in this area in our country.

The Vietnamese European Knowledge and Technology Transfer Education Consortium (VETEC) is an EU – funded project in Erasmus + Key Action 2 framework for the period of three years, coordinated by Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) – Belgium, with six International partners and coordinated in Portugal by the University of Aveiro, by professor David Resende (project PI), Carlos Rodrigues and José Paulo Rainho.

The Consortium consists of partners from Vietnam - North (Hanoi), Central (Hue) and South (Can Tho) – and from different European regions – North West (Belgium), Central (Germany) and South West (Portugal). The project aims to unlock knowledge and technology transfer (KTT) processes in Vietnam, by creating leadership and strengthening management and educational capacities in the field of KTT in three Vietnamese higher education institutions of the consortium; to train European KTT experts in countries of East Asia; and to strengthen EU-Vietnam cooperation in KTT and its approaches in both the EU and Vietnam.
