VANJ (Vietnamese Academic Network in Japan) is a non-profit organization founded in 2016, to initiate, coordinate and assemble academic activities for Vietnamese in Japan. We welcome Vietnamese and international scientists, researchers, students, and professionals working and studying in universities, research institutions, organizations, and companies in Japan and other regions, to join our network or events and create connections with Vietnamese academia.
Our vision is to be the representative platform/network for Vietnamese academics in Japan, where generations of Vietnamese intellectuals gather and connect, initiate and promote education, science and technology, and contribute to the developments of Vietnam.
Our mission is to initiate and promote networks among the Vietnamese academic community in Japan towards progressive values that make practical contributions to the development of Vietnam and the good relationship between Vietnam and Japan.
“to share knowledge”
VANJ places “sharing knowledge” at the center of all its activities. VANJ considers knowledge to be the lasting value of humanity and a lever for breakthrough developments in society. VANJ’s activities are intended not only to facilitate the creation of new knowledge, but also to promote sharing useful information, knowledge, and experience within the intellectual community and to society.
“via academic network”
The foundation of VANJ is based on the individuals and organizations in the fields of research and academia. Academic network is, therefore, a primary goal and core activity of our mission. “Academic network” includes connections within the network, between individuals and member organizations, and with external partners such as corporations, government agencies, investment funds, and other research institutions around the world, to create value in bridging academia and industry.
VANJ promotes the contribution of Vietnamese scientists, researchers and experts in Japan to the development of Vietnam, Japan in particular, and the world in general, as a core value. VANJ hopes to connect scientists, researchers, and experts with national and international institutions, companies, and organizations to provide knowledge and initiatives to help solve social problems and create breakthrough developments.
