President Nishio awarded insignia by the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology


On Friday, September 14, 2018, President NISHIO Shojiro was awarded an insignia from the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) by VAST President Chau Van Minh.

Since the conclusion of an inter-university agreement between Osaka University and
VAST in 2012, the two institutions have deepened their exchange through endeavors such as the establishment of a Joint Campus Office in 2017. President Nishio was presented with this insignia for the promotion of collaboration in research and education across various fields and areas of expertise. In addition, the title of Overseas Visiting Professor was given to President Minh to honor his contributions to the cooperative relationship between the two institutions through the establishment of the Joint Campus Office.

Moving forward, further cooperation between the two institutions is anticipated through efforts such as the formulation of a Double Degree Program and international industry-university collaboration.
