Seminar on Improving the Effectiveness and Linkage between Research and Education in Vietnam On November 17, 2004, an Agreement to create a proposal for setting up a model for centers of excellence in Vietnam was signed by MOST, SIG and VEF. Many actions have been taken such as organizing a SIG delegation to Vietnam, a Study Tour for a Vietnamese delegation to Brazil and Chile. The objective of this Seminar was two-fold, e.g. reporting to the concerned people on the Study Tour of the MSI delegation to Brazil and Chile as well as discussing on how to do it in Vietnam. Approximately 60 Vietnamese policy makers, scientists and university faculty members took part.

VEF helped MOST develop a proposal for the establishment of centers of excellence in Vietnam that was moved forward by MOST to the Vietnamese government.
