Consortium d’Etablissements Français d’Enseignement Supérieur et de Recherche pour le développement de l’USTH



The French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MESRMinistère de l'Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche) and the French Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs (MAEEMinistère des Affaires étrangères et européennes)  play an active part in the USTH initiative. They grant full financial support to the USTH Consortium and they  are largely involved in the discussions, project progress and decision-making process of the Consortium.


The partners of the future foundation are to take part in the USTH strategy-definition process.
The main goal of the foundation will be to federate all the partners (institutions, companies, organizations, individuals….) with a view to:

  • Support high level training
  • Contribute to levels of excellence in research
  • Promote research work  thanks to the setting up of a competence centre

The foundation should be set up shortly together with all the companies which have shown great interest for this initiative and which are willing to become founding members.

In Vietnam, some partnerships are already operational with other institutions such as the Vietnam Academy of Agronomical Science (RICE) as illustrated with the joint international research unit   “Rice Functional Genomics and Plant Biotechnology “widely supported by the Vietnam Academy for Agricultural Science (VAAS) and by IRDInstitut de Recherche pour le Développement and Montpellier 2 University in France.
