Štefánková and by Erasmus+ Institutional Coordinator I. Prelovský.
They discussed the possible ways of cooperation between Vietnam and Slovakia at the level of the STU in the field of science, research and education. The area of education should be followed by the tradition of Vietnamese students who studied at the STU in the past and eventually would have started to implement a mobility of our students in Vietnam and vice versa.
The meeting was carried out in warm and friendly atmosphere considering the fact that the head of the vietnamese delegation is a successful graduate of our university. The visit was completed by an offer of delegation from Vietnam to sign a specific agreement of cooperation.
The delegation after meeting with representatives of the STU visited the laboratories and teaching classes of the Faculty of Chemical and Food Technology of the STU.
