Two Vietnamese researchers have received awards from the French Academy of Sciences and the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

Tran Quang Hoa, a lecturer at Hue University of Education, and Hoang Thi Giang, a staff member at the Vietnam Institute of Agricultural Genetics, received the award for their successful cooperation in projects with France. They were honored on June 14 by the French Academy of Sciences and the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research.

Hoa's joint project with Professor Marc Chardin, an expert at the French Institute for Scientific Research and a lecturer at the Sorbonne University, involves studies in theoretical mathematics.

Meanwhile, the project by Professor Stéphane Jouannic of the French Institute for Development Research and Hoang Thi Giang focuses on finding genes and genetic traits of high-quality rice varieties that can adapt to climate change.

Speaking to Vietnam New Agency in Paris, Professor Marc Chardin expressed his happiness to receive this award as it allows him to continue working with the young mathematics research group at Hue University, some other universities, and the Hanoi Institute of Mathematics.

Francis-André Wollman, Vice President in charge of International Cooperation of the French Academy of Sciences, said the research project on rice genes and genetic characteristics by Professors Stéphane Jouannic and Hoang Thi Giang was highly appreciated not only for the remarkable cooperation and efficiency between these two organizations in the field of research and training but also for the practical issue related to the study of rice genetic resources in Vietnam.

In addition to the scientific importance, the topic has practical value as it will serve as a basis for discovering rice varieties that can withstand heat, drought, and flooding while effectively developing Vietnam's rice resources. The project aims to find rice varieties that can cope with future challenges, such as climate change, affecting rice cultivation and yields.
