The Digi:Đổi Consortium
Funded by the British Council Vietnam, The Digi:Đổi Consortium is an innovative global network to deliver a future-proofed, scalable digital transformation hub in Vietnam underpinned by digital inclusion, wellbeing, and net-zero.
“The Digi:Đổi Consortium represents the strong values for student-focus, inclusion, community and courage. This is a perfect example of a collaboration that prepares us for a digital future that is already here and I would encourage more partners to come forward to be part of this revolutionary consortium.”
