Foundation Relations with VUST
We helps to foster and stewards mutually-advancing relationships between the University (VUST) and companies and private professional foundations. Part of the Office of Development, we help faculty and external funding partners connect and collaborate to advance mutual goals that align with the university’s mission and support students succeed at the Univeristy and promote faculty teaching and research works.
We can help companies and foundations navigate the university, find faculty and programs of interest, and arrange for campus meetings. We can also facilitate funding requests, awards, and reporting, and help illuminate campus research funding policies.
Partnership is essential to VUST’s creative and efficient approach to interdisciplinary collaboration to advance the university’s mission of rigorous scholarship, pioneering research, and public engagement. VUST’s cutting-edge technology and programs of Cybersecurity, Information Assurance, Big Data, Cloud Engineering, Advanced Business Technology and Marketing Analysis, etc. would provide the company’s much-needed technology and senior elite talent.
VUST’s outstanding faculty, gifted research fellows, and intelligent graduates propel the development of new technologies, the creation of new knowledge, and the search from different perspectives for sustainable solutions to some of the world’s most vexing problems and would greatly help partnered companies to develop new services and new state-of-the-art products.
