During the UK business trip from November 20 to 24, 2023, the UK-Vietnam Rectors' Forum in Edinburgh convened more than 60 leaders from higher education institutions in the UK and Vietnam. The event serves as a platform for fostering opportunities between UK and Vietnamese universities, promoting interdisciplinary approaches in areas such as climate change, energy transition, and innovation.
