Germany’s Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), Vietnam’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) office in Hanoi will jointly organize the ‘German Science Day’ on Wednesday at the Pan Pacific Hotel to highlight some exemplary bilateral research projects, the German Embassy said in a press release on Monday.

Vietnam and Germany have been working together successfully in many fields of research for many years.

Sustainable water management, climate change and the necessary adaptation strategies, urban development, bioeconomy, biodiversity, and health research are examples of successful cooperation between researchers from both countries, who are to provide solutions to Vietnam's complex challenges.

Another form of successful cooperation is the Vietnamese-German University, which is exemplary in Vietnam as a model research university and with its practical relevance.

The BMBF, MoST, and other German funding institutions will present the research landscapes of both countries as well as funding opportunities for new joint project ideas.

The German ambassador Guido Hildner, MoST Vice-Minister Bui The Duy and Head of Unit Kathrin Meyer from the BMBF will open the ‘German Science Day,’ which will offer visitors public access to many years of good research collaboration.

Many German project participants will use the trip to the ‘German Science Day’ to exchange ideas with their Vietnamese partners in research cooperation workshops.

The ‘German Science Day’ will also include events on water supply in mountainous areas, biodiversity, sustainable urban development, and adaptation strategies in climate change.
