During the working session, Ms. Emmanuel Chevreau, Vice President in charge of International Affairs at Paris-Panthéon-Assas University, expressed her gratitude for the warm welcome extended to the delegation by NAPA. She mentioned the opportunities for collaboration between the two sides during the delegation to the French Republic led by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Luong Thanh Cuong in June 2023, including discussions on university training cooperation between the two institutions. She hopes that NAPA and the Paris-Panthéon-Assas University can carry out close collaborative activities in university training or in a three-way collaboration involving NAPA, the French National Institute of Public Service (INSP), and the Paris-Panthéon-Assas University.

In addition, both sides can proceed to sign a cooperation agreement and start immediately with student exchange programs for undergraduate or Master’s degrees at the University. Alternatively, the University may send students for an exchange program or participate in studies at NAPA for a semester of the academic year, depending on the terms agreed upon in the cooperation agreement. The Paris-Panthéon-Assas University can also accept doctoral students for research at the University, engage in joint supervision of research, and potentially obtain a dual degree. Ms. Emmanuel Chevreau added that the University has just recently joined the alliance of seven universities in Europe and has been operating closely and effectively, which is a significant advantage for the collaboration between the two sides.
