Ms. Que Anh said that the technology projects and topics that the school receives funding from Hanoi National University are very few, only a few hundred million a year. The life cycle of each project is different and depending on the time of reporting (for example when the product has just finished, or has not yet been set up,…) the revenue source is also different. The school has topics and projects and has funding for implementation, but it is not a source of revenue for the school from scientific research and technology transfer but is a direct support cost for the researchers of the topic, project.
