Hanoi Hosts Science Meeting with Asian Theme

Around 100 scientists from several major universities across Asia gathered in Hanoi in March for the Second International Conference on Sustainable Science in Asia (ICSS-Asia 2011). The forum was chaired by the directors of Hanoi's National University and Tokyo University who discussed topics relating to the development of science and creating a safe environment for people to live in.

Also on the agenda were issues on climate change, urban and rural sustainable development, environmental protection and human resources training in science. The event was an opportunity for scientists to share their experiences on sustainable socio-economic development and helped to link training and research establishments and international organizations operating in the communal sustainable development sector.
