Our Research activities focus on the development of Innovative Technologies and Systems : Information and Communication Technologies, Biotechnology and Nanotechnology and their applications in the fields of Space, Health, Energy Management and Environmental Protection.
To implement Research activities, and according to the 2009 Vietnam France intergovernmental agreement, USTH has the mission to set up Joint International Research Laboratories, with a focus on joint collaborations between USTH Vietnamese researchers and teams from Research and Training Institutions from French Consortium.
By the end of 2016, a number of joint international research units have been implemented:
  • LMI RICE-2 (Laboratoire Mixte International) - “Functional Genomics and Biotechnology for Plants and associated Microorganisms”: Pharmacological, Medical and Agronomical Biotechnology Department, created in 2011 and actually located on Agricultural Genetics Institute, VAAS.
  • ICTLab - Information, Communication and Technology joint laboratory: Information and Communication Technology Department, created in 2014 and located at USTH.
  • HILO - International Laboratory of Oceanography: Water - Environment - Oceanography Department, created in 2014 and located at USTH.
  • CLEAN-ED - Clean Energy and Sustainable Development joint laboratory: Energy Department, created in 2014 and located at USTH.
  • LMI DRISA (Laboratoire Mixte International) - “Drug Resistance in South East Asia”: Pharmacological, Medical and Agronomical Biotechnology Department, created in 2016 and located in NIHE
  • LMI LOTUS Project (Laboratoire Mixte International) - “Land Ocean aTmosphere coUpled System”: Water - Environment - Oceanography Department, launched in 2018.
