Discussions with the University of Danang
Óbuda University’s Vice-Rector for Education, Dr. Levente Kovács and Vice-Rector for Research and International Relations, Dr. Imre Felde held talks with the leaders of one of the most prestigious Vietnamese universities, University of Danang. An agreement was prepared in order to strengthen cooperation between the two institutions.
Óbuda University’s academic leaders attended the event entitled “ IEEE-RIVF International Conference on Computing and Communication Technologies 2019” between March 20-22, 2019. Being held annually, the conference is a well-known and significant event from a scientific point of view.
Applications had to go through careful scrutiny according to strict criteria; only 37 percent of submissions were given a chance to present their publications. Even if posters are factored in, less than half the submissions were accepted.
Beside French, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Singaporean and Vietnamese presenters, Óbuda University’s Physiological Controls Research Center and SmartLab Center were given the privilege to present their article „Systemic Fluid Balance Control in Haemodialysis Machines with ANFIS” (authors: József Klespitz, Gergő Pintér, Imre Felde, László Nádai, Levente Kovács) and another article titled „Activity Pattern Analysis of the Mobile Phone Network during a Large Social Event” (authors: Gergő Pintér, László Nádai, Gábor Bognár, Zoltán Biczó, Imre Felde) was featured in the poster section
Following the conference, Dr. Levente Kovács and Dr. Imre Felde had discussions with the academic leaders of the University of Danang on the successful implementation of the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility programme and expressed their wish to strengthen the exchange programmes and expand the scope of the cooperation between the two institutions.
The University of Danang was represented by the Rector, Dr. Phan Cao Tho, Head of International Department, Tra Qui Phan and his deputy, Dr. Hong Nguyen Thi Khanh. The parties agreed that apart from strengthening Erasmus+ exchanges, the two universities intend to offer PhD research topics with joint supervision and are going to make sure credits will be recognized by each other. Furthermore, the Vietnamese university expressed its wish to encourage scientific cooperation and promote the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme among the students, which would enable them to pursue their studies on Masters and PhD programmes.
The University of Danang is currently the third most reputable university focusing on engineering out of 280 Vietnamese higher education institutions and they are a key player in the central region having strong industrial partnerships in the field of computer science engineering.
Talks are to continue in Budapest as the delegation from the University of Danang is visiting Óbuda University at the beginning of April 2019.
