Project Description
According to bank documents, the stated objective of this project is "to improve research, teaching, and institutional capacity at selected autonomous universities and strengthen the national higher education management system." The project has two components. The first component, improved research, teaching, and institutional management capacity at three selected autonomous universities will support the three selected autonomous universities so that they can provide lessons for the wider higher education system. Each university belongs to one of three types of Higher Education Institution (HEIs) and thus will serve as pilot models whose lessons can then be generalized into the revised policy on HE autonomy and quality assurance. Each university has its own subcomponent and will manage its own activities. The second component, strengthened national higher education (HE) management system and e-library establishment will strengthen the national HE system by supporting policy development and strengthening key HE subsystems. It will support the establishment of an eLibrary Portal, as one of the national system strengthening measures. Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) will be responsible managing Component 2, as well as monitoring and reporting on the project as a whole. The eLibrary Portal subcomponent will be managed by the National Economic University (NEU) on behalf of MOET. Targeted university: Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Vietnam National University of Agriculture (VNUA), Industrial University of Ho Chi Minh City
