Inside Vietnam

Outside Vietnam

  • Trust
  • Lack of delegation of power in management
  • Investment for R&D in science and technology is still low
  • Limited computing infrastructure to support research activities
  • ‘Extreme’ bureaucratic procedures with little understanding on the research process
  • Passive-style education system with heavy emphasis on memorization and passing written exams
  • Students are ill-prepared for research work
  • Trust
  • Lack of commitment
  • Mentality of giving mercy
  • Have limited time in Vietnam
  • Lack of understanding on government procedures and policies
