HA NOI (VNS)– Over 200 scientists from 30 nations, including seven Nobel Prize winners, will attend the 9th “Meeting Viet Nam” – a series of scientific workshops and physics lectures to be held from July 28 to August 17 in the central province of Binh Dinh.
The event is being organised by the ministries of Science and Technology, Education and Training and Foreign Affairs along with the Association Rencontres (meeting) du Vietnam.
Association chairman Dr Tran Thanh Van said yesterday the association would take advantage of the meeting to open an International Centre for Interdisciplinary Science and Education in the province’s Quy Nhon City.
The association was co-founded by Van and Professor Nguyen Van Hieu in 1993 to boost the development of high-level research in Viet Nam and Southeast Asia and to create research groups which would work in co-operation with Western scientists.
Van, who lives in France, was presented with the Legion of Honour Order by the French government for his contribution to science. — VNS
