University-Industry Collaboration International Cooperation Symposium - Vietnam Next #2: "Japanese Technology Opening the Mekong Delta"

2016-3-4 (Fri) 13:00 - 17:00

Since the Doi Moi Policy began in 1987, through the introduction of socialist market economy, Vietnam has become a newly emerging nation. However, at the same time, Vietnam must now continue to evolve and take the next step, one that includes quality of population, the role of industrial structure, response to environmental issues, social security, and globalization, not simply economic growth.

In consideration of these kinds of problems, Osaka University has implemented the Future Research Initiative Group Support Project entitled "Formation of a solution model through area-compatible, comprehensive environmental renewal of the Mekong River basin in southern Vietnam." At the same time, the Global Collaboration Center (GLOCOL) has actively participated in international cooperation, including support of higher education in Vietnam. We'd like to use this symposium as an opportunity to formulate this next step for Vietnam not just as a university, but through cooperation with the industrial world as well.
