Achievements of scientific research, technology transferring and working activities:

GTC has been operating for over 20 years with thousands of research projects, technology application contracts. The number of projects was 80 in period of 1986-1989, 100 in period of 1990-1995, 200 in period of 1996-2000, and 500 in period of 2001-2002 and over 1,000 in period of 2003-2008.

GTC has carried out some ministry level researches such as follows: Large diameter rotary boring (1996); Geo-environmental changes caused by engineering and economical activities in Hanoi (1996); Soil and rock deformation at high depth (1998); Soft ground improvement by using cast-in-place concrete pile with mix of cements, lime and sand (2000); The seam declination and deformations (2001); Land resources for construction of HN (1998-2004); Argumentation of Engineering Geological Condition for underground Construction of Hanoi Capital (1999-2005); Polimer-bentonite fluid for coal exploration by wire-line core barrel reaching 2,000m depth (2006-2009). Etc.

GTC has taking part in training 12 doctors, 20 masters, over 300 engineers, and over 100 testing staffs.
