ENHANCE will strengthen capacities by promoting effective Research and Innovation (R&I) management and implementation via:

  • Building human capacities in R&I Management and Implementation (targeted training programme with relevant topics selected on the basis of the in-depth SWOT analysis of the national R&I system).
  • Strengthening institutional capacity and enhancing national networking with the creation of a Network of Research and Innovation Offices in Vietnam that will be a national level reference for R&I in service of the academic/research community & HEI management, as well as for continuous dialogue with HE and S&T authorities.

Capacity Building will be multimodal with a tailor made approach for the different targets (R&I Units, academic/researchers & HE authorities). R&I Units will be in charge of their replication for generating impact and benefit at national level. Networking events will be organised to bring together HE & authorities to foster mutual dialogue and the improvement of R&I at policy level. This will be possible thanks to the drafting of the ENHANCE White Paper with recommendations for VIET R&I improvement. Dissemination of the action will be multimodal and intensive for increasing exploitation and long-term impact. Excellence of the main outputs will be ensured by a well-defined internal Quality Monitoring & the contribution of 2 top level external Quality Assurance experts who will provide recommendations on most relevant outputs.
