From 17th June to 23rd June 2018, the UEB’s research group on “Distribution of resources in the socialist-oriented market economy: Current situation, problems and solutions” (code KX.04.14/16-20) leaded by Assoc.Prof.Dr. Nguyen Hong Son - Vice President of Vietnam National University, Hanoi paid a visit to Denmark and Norway to study the development model and experiences in allocating resources for economic development in these countries.

Members of the research group included Dr. Nguyen Cam Nhung, Dr. Nguyen Vu Ha and MA. Nguyen Thi Thanh Mai from Faculty of International Business and Economics, VNU University of Economics and Business.

Within the framework of the program, the group had meeting and discussion with representatives from University of Southern Denmark - SDU, Innovation Fund Denmark, International School of Hellrup and Oslo Institute for Research on the Impact of Science - The University of Oslo.


The in-depth interview with representatives of these agencies provided lots of valuable proof on Denmark’s experiences in attracting and mobilizing the resources, especially the high quality human resources for economic development as well as Norway’s experiences in mobilizing resources for green development and effective allocation of petroleum resources.

The working trip brought about valuable information on Denmark and Norway experiences in allocating resources, including traditional resources such as natural resources, human resources and renovated resources such as technology and alternative energy. This will provide practical evidences for the research group to complete the project as well as give feasible and useful recommendations for policy makers in Vietnam.

Meanwhile, the meeting with University of South Denmark and Oslo University opened opportunities of cooperation in research and training with Vietnam National University, Hanoi in general and VNU University of Economics and Business in particular.
