VLab Berlin is a social entrepreneur spin-off of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Emerging from the student initiative Vietnam Stammtisch @Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, the team has been actively promoting Vietnamese-German educational and cultural transfer since 2013. In the non-profit sector, we realise formal and informal (learning) events to make the diversity of Vietnamese-German perspectives more visible and to create interfaces between generations and countries. In the area of business, we offer services to teach intercultural skills. The V stands for our Vietnam connection; as a Lab, we are open to new formats of cultural transfer and education.

From the beginning, DOMiD has advocated for a culture of remembrance in the migration society and continues to advocate for the inclusion of the diverse history of migrants in official historical narratives.
