Prof. Truong Nguyen Thanh, Leader of Ho Chi Minh Instituttion of Computational Science and Technology(ICST) visited Tan Tao University

July 11thProf. Truong Nguyen Thanh, Leader of Ho Chi Minh Instituttion of Computational Science and Technology(ICST) had a meeting about the chance of co-operation in science research with Tan Tao University.

ICST is under the management of Ho Chi Minh City Department of Science and Technology and operates independently. ISCT is the Pasteur model and the connection between Vietnamese and foreign scientists. ICST's vision is becoming the world-class for research, applications and education in Computational Science and Technology. ICST has 6 laboratories: Life Science; Molecular Science and Nano Materials; Environmental Science; Computational Engineering; Cyber-Infrastructure and Math technology and application.

However computational Science and technology in Viet Nam has a lot of l in limitationin scale, co-operation among other related sciences and universities, researching result, papers published on international scientific journals. Computational Science and technology is invested lower in compare with other science. Although computational Science and technology is new in Asia, basic math knowledge is the advantage of Vietnamese students.

Global economic crisis is the chance to develop knowledgeable economy in Viet Nam with coming back of Vietnamese students studying abroad. This is also reason for the development of computational Science and technology in Viet Nam

The the above facts is the foundation for the co-operation between ICST and TTU. After listening to the introduction about TTU, Prof. Truong Nguyen Thanh highly appreciated this co-operation and TTU's policy of encouraging science research. He also advise two kinds of co-operation: TTU's faculty can join in the appropriate science projects of ICST; or TTU's faculty can set up their all team of research in ICST if they have their own project. For more development and understanding about each other, Prof. Truong Nguyen Thanh also recommended seminar in ICST for TTU's faculty.

TTU board of manager and faculty member committed to support for the researching co-operation. The meeting ended with harmony atmosphere and both side's benefit.
