The overall evaluations of Doctoral research students are evaluated as high quality performances and many outstanding researches. The Doctoral research students gave presentations in English (the universal language of science) to attract the audiences, as well as discussed effectively with the jury and scientists, research students participated in the 1st Doctoral Day.

For the results of the 1st Doctoral Day, the jury selected the two most excellent reports including:


Trinh Thi Trang Nhung, Institute of Biotechnology (IBT), VAST

Dr. Tran Dinh Phong, Co-director of Advanced Materials Science and Nanotechnology department, Co-Director of the USTH Doctoral School shared his ideas:”The Science Day for research students is an unique culture of the training doctoral programs in France. In 2017, USTH Doctoral School organized the 1st Doctoral Day to imply this culture to USTH. The Doctoral Day is a place for research students to exchange their researches, their research ideas in future and to find research collaborations.
The good quality of reports allowed us to believe in the Doctoral training programs at USTH, in which the training collaboration between the Vietnamese scientists and international scientists has been effectively taking place. Especially, in the first year, we have had chances to listen to meaningful sharing about science and life of young researchers like Assoc. Prof. Nguyen Ngoc Minh,
VNU University of Science.
I believe his sharing will help many research students at USTH and in other training centers in Vietnam. From the success of 2017, we will continue to organize the Doctoral Day for research students in the following years and also consider this event as an important activity for the Doctoral training programs at USTH."

Congratulations to the Doctoral research students for their great achievements on the Doctoral Day 2017  and USTH is looking forward to seeing you on the Doctoral Day 2018.
