GREENUS is a higher education capacity building project within the framework of the Erasmus + program funded by EACEA and implemented at HCMUT in the period of 2021-2024. The project consists of 8 member universities (3 European universities including Sapienza University of Rome – Italy, Hellenic Mediterranean University – Greece and Uniwersytet Jagiellonski W Krakowie – Poland; 3 Vietnamese universities: Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Can Tho University and two Myanmar universities: Yangon Technology University and Mandalay Technological University) working together to develop the technical capabilities of young generations in the field of solid waste management in Vietnam and Myanmar through enhancing the leading role of higher education institutions. The GREENUS Project’s specific objective is to establish six new interdisciplinary courses on waste management, environmental protection and recycling processes in 3 universities in Vietnam and 2 universities in Myanmar and tentatively integrate these courses into the academic programs at 5 universities to strengthen local capacity in management and waste recycling as well as the capacity of local laboratories to provide practical training in waste treatment to meet the market demands. The GREENUS courses will be based on an innovative approach that includes the respect of both European and local quality standards, the promotion of students and professors’ mobility, the internationalization of education and the promotion of the recycling culture.
