The National INTENSE Doctoral School in Vietnam has been agreed (and technically started its work) in November 2019, and has been formally established on March 26, 2021 through a MoU on joint PhD training and research signed by Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) and Ho Chi Minh City University of Natural Resources and Environment (HCMUNRE). An accession of other Vietnamese universities to the School is being negotiated. The founding members are also working on a more detailed framework for their joint cooperation over the INTENSE School, and on formalising ties with the international INTENSE network. The INTENSE program at HUST is hosted by the School of Environmental Science and Technology (INEST), and at HCMUNRE is is managed by the Department of Environment. Through the INTENSE CBHE Erasmus+ project the capacity of partner institutions for interdisciplinary doctoral training in environmental studies has been significantly enriched. This included equipment acquisition, training events for PhD students and their potential supervisors, revision and development of curriculum contents as well as quality assurance processes and e-services, all based on a capacity need survey run on the first year of the project.
