The main focus of the trip was to discuss current and future project components with the project partners. Foremost among these are student and instructor exchanges, which will be expanded to include actual travel now that in-person teaching is taking place again. For example, four students from the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) were nominated for the first time to spend the upcoming winter semester in the Department of Automotive and Aeronautical Engineering, and receive an accompanying full scholarship. HAW Hamburg students can also apply until 15 June for an exchange stay – and a full scholarship – in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City. The scholarships are granted by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. University-wide cooperation agreements were also signed with HUST and the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HUTECH).
