The Ministry of Education and Training held a ceremony in Hanoi on April 20 to officially hand over Hanoi Science-Technology University (HSTU) to the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST).

 At the ceremony

The event was held in accordance with the Prime Minister’s decision issued on March 18, 2016 on assigning the VAST to directly manage HSTU.

Speaking at the ceremony, Deputy Minister of Education and Training Bui Van Ga spoke highly of the support in terms of management, staff training, research, and international co-operation made by the VAST to HSTU since its foundation.

As a leading scientific research and postgraduate training institute in Vietnam, the VAST is believed to provide HSTU with favourable conditions during its professional development stage, Deputy Minister Ga noted.

In 2011, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) approved loans of US$190 million for the establishment of HSTU – a state-of-the-art institution which supports research, technical innovation, and skills development.

The French government also complemented the ADB assistance by extending about EUR100 million over 10 years to help develop the university, which has a contribution of US$23 million from the Vietnamese Government.
