HVL is strongly committed to international collaboration in research and education. Through participating in a number of international programmes and externally funded projects, our students, teachers and researchers are offered many exchange and collaboration opportunities with institutions all over the world.

Interaction with the world

HVL aims to use its multidisciplinary expertise in collaboration with local and global partners to explore solutions to the challenges of this world.  HVL is part of several international networks and collaborate extensively with many partners around the world.


The decisions we make today surely affects the future. Sustainability is the backdrop of all education and research at HVL.  


Creativity, new and useful ideas are at the forefront of HVLs strategy. Research-based education is crucial to equip our students with the skill of thinking out of the box and executing that novel idea.
