Mr. Doan Kim Thanh talked about the competition. This year, eligible topics of study for the prize included chemistry and pharmacy, food technology, IT, biotechnology and biomedical technology, education, economics, engineering, the environment and social sciences and the humanities. The organizers accepted entries from schools, not from individuals. Each school had to establish their own scientific council before entering the contest, assess their students’ projects and select the best ones to compete for the prize. Each school could enter up to ten research projects per field.
 
“I have organized the Eureka Student Research Competition seventeen times already. It has grown rapidly and now attracts large numbers of lecturers and students from many universities, colleges and institutions nationwide,” said Mr. Thanh. “It is seen as a prestigious prize and provides a strong competitive environment for young people with a love of research. Many of our scientific and technological research projects have received high appreciation from businesses for their high practicality and use in our daily lives.”
