- MISR continues to enhance the training activities and development of human resources at development countries such as Japan, Netherlands, and China. Up to now, 04 staffs have been participating in the Doctoral program in domestic and abroad.

c. Building infrastructure capacity

As of December 31, 2018, MISR is managing the use of 03 fixed asset items: land use rights at address 321 Huynh Thuc Khang, Hue City; land use right at Dong Luong community, Dong Ha city, Quang Tri province and preparing documents for land use right at An Van Duong new urban area - Zone C - Phu Thuong, Phu Vang, Thua Thien Hue with an area of 1.7 ha.
The investment project to build the MISR at 321 Huynh Thuc Khang, Hue city completed including working and research blocks (3 floors); one auxiliary block (2 floors); and other ancillary items. The building is suitable with the landscape of the area, ensuring the quality of the works, satisfying the utility and the architectural form.
The project "Building Quang Tri Center for Science and Technology" in Dong Ha city, Quang Tri province completed in 2015 with a two-floor house and has a total floor area of 450 m2, the height of 11.85 m and a fence system around the land area of 5,498 m2
The investment project of Biological equipment and devices at MISR implemented, including modern research equipment and devices in order to carry out services of scientific research in the field of biology and chemistry in the central region of Vietnam.

d. International cooperation

MISR continues to strengthen international cooperation and many staffs of MISR have studied, visited as well as scientific exchanged with scientists at different international organizations and universities in Taiwan, Japan, Korea, China, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States. MISR achieved the cooperation agreements with organizations in the United States, Japan, Belgium, Sweden, Belarus. MISR has also participated in implementing scientific research programs between the two international partners, take advantages of international partners in training and developing the human resources of MISR.

e. Other information

MISR has built a good relationship with central coastal provinces, universities and scientific and technological training centers in the region. Organization of MISR is stable gradually; scientific staffs are developing; researching equipment, devices and facilities are also improved in order to meet the demands for scientific and technological activities, solve practical problems of the central region.
The research results in recent years have gradually improved in terms of quality and quantity, the scale of projects is also getting larger, creating premises for building a long-term development strategy of MISR.
With a geographical location located in the Central region, and rich in natural potential, MISR recognizes that discovery and exploit this region’s potential are a key task in order to continue to improve the quality and quantity of research projects to contribute in the socio-economic development of the central region.
