The UEB joins in VNU's 1st Science and Technology Festival

May 18th 2014, together with other VNU’s members, the University of Economics and Business has actively participated the Science and Technology Festival held for the first time.

In the determination of becoming a research-oriented university, the VNU University of Economics and Business (UEB) always considers scientific research as one of the key activities. The UEB leaders encouraged university members to participate in research and creativity. Particularly, the university pays attention on developing strong research teams. 

To 2014, Vietnam National University Hanoi has over 80 strong research teams at different levels. In which, there are 16 teams organized as major research teams at VNU level.

At a conference on “Developing strong research teams” held on May 17th, UEB Rector Assoc.Prof.Dr. Nguyen Hong Son has pointed out two key conditions for a steady research team. Those are favorable environment and the leader’s role. Accordingly, the team leader is required to be able to clarify research direction in long term; connect and guide other members in common activities; seek the funding for the team activity by his prestige and relationship.

The UEB’s team on macroeconomic theory and policy in Vietnam economic integration led by Dr. Nguyen Duc Thanh has been recognized as a strong team and granted Certificate of Merit by VNU President.
