This is the call to select 6 research projects for funding. The on-going projects are presented at http://184.108.40.206/ri/research-projects/. This year, USTH will provide funding for 8 new research projects to cover operating costs (max 10k$ per year per project) and significant support for equipment (under Package 3 of ADB loan). The duration of the projects is no more than 3 years. The criteria includes scientific criteria (quality of the project and team) and sustainability criteria (project management, partnerships in Vietnam and Consortium, engagement of Lecturers trained in France, co-funding etc). The decision on funding will be made in August, 2015. Some of the projects may be postponed if not mature enough. The selected projects will be kicked off by October 1st.
