Australia Awards Scholarships Information Day for Vietnamese Universities

The 2015 Vietnam University Information Day of the Australia Awards Scholarships was held in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi on 24 and 26 July 2015. The number of Australia Awards Scholarships for Vietnam has been reduced from 185 awardees in 2014. For the 2015/2016 intake, there will be up to 100 conditional awardees, of which 80 will enroll in coursework masters programs and 20 will be PhD candidates. From 2016-2020, the Australian Government will roll out the Australia-Vietnam Human Resource Development Program to deliver Australia Awards Scholarships, short term training and other support.

New MOU Signed Between the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) Vietnam and the Cooperative Research and Capacity-Building Initiative (CRCI)

To support the development of evidence–based policy and governance in Vietnam, a collaborative network of experts from The University of Queensland (UQ), University if Newcastle (UON), University of Tasmania (UTAS, and a range of Vietnamese universities and research institutes have formed the Cooperative Research and Capacity-Building Initiative (CRCI). On 23 July 2015, the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) Vietnam and the CRCI signed an MOU and developed an action plan for collaboration, capacity building and research in agriculture, aquaculture and food security, natural resources management, and innovation in the private and public sectors. Associate Professor Ron Johnstone from School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management is the UQ lead in this project.
