VEES-NET is a collaborative network that promotes cooperation between Vietnamese universities on employability and entrepreneurship issues for students. This is the first network in Vietnam established from the close cooperation of eight leading universities in Vietnam under the project “Strengthening the Vietnamese Higher Education System to improve graduates’ employability and entrepreneurship skills”(V2WORK) of the Eramus+ Program funded by the European Commission.
