On Jan 09th, 2023, Osaka University Japan (OU) and Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Vietnam held a meeting in order to implement and promote teaching activities for undergraduates and graduate students in ELITECH Bioengineering program, including academic exchange, research cooperation between the two Universities.

At the meeting, Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Phong Dien, Vice-President of HUST, expressed his appreciation for the meaningful educational aided activities of the corporation over the years and showed his expectation in the strategic cooperation between the two sides. He stressed that “Osaka University and HUST already had a strategic cooperation agreement, creating a legal framework for the implementation of deeper and broader cooperation activities, contributing to creating high-quality human resources for the society, especially for a continuation of education support as supporting and advising for the ELITECH program in Bioengineering.

This meeting is considered as a further development of the ongoing fruitful cooperation and proved the mutual trust and the expectation of greater results in the coming time.”
Prof. KAWAHARA Genta, Executive Vice-president of Osaka University, and Prof FUJIYAMA Kazuhito, Director of International Center for Biotechnology (OU) at the meeting.
Prof. KAWAHARA Genta, Executive Vice-president of Osaka University emphasized that both sides would strive to promote many activities such as collaborative research, lectures, symposiums, education materials, and the exchange of researchers and undergraduate students and graduate students.

Prof KAWAHARA Genta also mentioned the Joint Campus Education Program (JCEP), an initiative from OU for future collaboration with its partner universities. The aim of JCEP is to foster jointly excellent researchers through systematic exchanges from undergraduate to graduate positions. The concept of JCEP perfectly fits the one of ELITECH Bioengineering program in which HUST emphasizes on Internationalization when (i) OU professors will be invited to give lectures to ELITECH Bioengineering program: (ii) course matching/bilateral credit recognition with OU and student exchange via short visit as well as internship

After many years of collaboration, HUST has around 10 lecturers who graduated from Osaka University in Biotechnology, Mechanical, Electronic, and telecommunication fields. In the near future, both universities hope to fulfill the ELITECH programs towards elite students who aspire to become excellent engineers, experts, and managers in Biotechnology field.
Assoc. Prof. Chu Ky Son - Dean of School of Biotechnology and Food Technology shared his expectation for continuing collaboration with Osaka University.
Assoc. Prof. Vu Thu Trang presented updates regarding examples of the product R&D in food biotechnology with the Japanese spirit.
