At PTIT Hanoi’s campus, the 3rd Internal Workshop under Erasmus+ MARCO POLO Project was organised on 11 March 2019 with participant of over 20 profesors and students. During the workshop, PTIT selected the best suitable candidates for the mobility action as well as disseminated the upcoming activities of project.
Within the framework of WP3, the mobility action for students and professors was implemented within the universities parnets of the project. Accordingly, 12 students and lecturers of the Institute will participate in mobility programs within around 01-02 weeks in Austria, UK, Spain, Malaysia and Thailand.
The MARCO POLO Project is aimed to enhance international cooperation capabilities of universities in Asean and Europe through activities strengthening of strategic, infrastructural and human capacities. These activities which were designed to enhance capabilities for international cooperation departments and international training centers (including staff and coordinators) are highlights of the project because they exert an influence over the academic community (students, teachers and researchers) and play a key role in international cooperation programs (student and lecturer exchange, diploma standardization and creation of multiple programs, establishment of groups of researching and recognizing degrees). Experts from EU partners who are experienced in implementing Emarus+ program will make great contributions to this project.
An alliance of 10 universities from 06 different countries (Spain, UK, Austria, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam) was formed, including 03 European universities very experienced in development of international cooperation programs and 06 Asian universities facing with challenges in international cooperation.
In Vietnam, Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology and Hanoi University are beneficiaries of the project. The project will be carried out for 03 years, from 2016 to 2019 with key activities of organizing internal seminars on the project, seminars on introducing the project to partners and businesses and sending officers to attend training courses under the project.
