Abstract: This chapter provides an overview of the research role of Vietnamese universities. It sets university research activities within the context of Vietnam's public sector research organisation and recent industrial development, paying particular attention to research funding, research personnel, research outputs and postgraduate training. While the Vietnamese government has set ambitious targets to enhance research and development (R&D) and university research as part of its overall objective to achieve industrialised country status by 2020, university research capacity is severely limited, although small numbers of universities in recent years have made impressive progress.
