For the implementation of the second batch of research project, the Project Management Unit (PMU) of CTU Improvement Project organized the meetings of 15 Technical Committees on the 11th, 12th and 13th of June 2018 to evaluate 15 submitted research proposals. These proposals have been called and processed since 5th January 2018 and will be implemented in 3 years starting from October 2018. The organization of these Technical Committees’ meetings follows the selection process in the Guidelines for Research Management of the CTU Improvement Project established based on the official Project documents, i.e., the Feasibility Study document and the Minutes of Discussion of different meetings among JICA, delegations of Japanese Professors, Project consultants and CTU, as well as the Guidelines for Management of Research Projects in the Circular 11/2016/TT-BGDĐT dated 11th April 2016 of the Ministry of Education and Training.

A Technical Committee was composed of:

1 Director of the Project Management Unit of the CTU Improvement Project (PMU) Chairman
2 Vice Rector of CTU, Chairman of the CTU Council of Scientific Research and Education Vice Chairman
  Head of the PMU Research Management Unit Member
  Leader of the corresponding field (Agriculture/Aquaculture and Fisheries/Environment) Member
  Scientist of the field Member
  Scientist of the field Member
  Scientist of the field Secretary

15 proposals have been thoroughly reviewed by the Japanese Technical Committees from 9 Japanese Universities then revised accordingly by the research teams; therefore, they were qualified and selected by the Committees to be suitably granted by the Project in 2018. Each research team presented their proposals and responded to various constructive critics from the Committee members. All 15 proposals would be revised according to the Committee’s conclusions then sent to the Japanese Technical Committees for the second review. Those proposals are:
