This workshop is part of the MONTUS project “Master On New Technologies Using Services” funded by EU Erasmus + fund. The project is a succession of achievements and continues to grow based on the TORUS project “Toward an Open Resource Upon Service” from 2015-2018, in which FIMO Center is a member of the project. MONTUS project is one of 6 French projects selected among 147 projects selected from 874 candidates. The project is funded by the European Union for 3 years with the framework of the Erasmus + capacity building program and aims to develop research on cloud computing in environmental science and promote education in other Southeast Asia countries.

Assoc.Prof.Dr. Chu Duc Trinh delivered an opening speech.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Vice Rector Chu Duc Trinh shared that Vietnam National University continues to maintain the No. 1 position in higher education institutions in Vietnam with the 1132th ranking in the world, 282th in Asia and 20th in Southeast Asia in the Webometrics rankings for the first time in 2020. In recent years, UET-VNU is trying to apply advanced technologies to solve socio-economic problems. To address these issues, we need an multidisciplinary approach and solution. The university has opened more multidisciplinary institutes, faculties and subjects such as the Faculty of Agricultural Technology, the Aerospace Technology Institute, the Department of Construction and Transport Technology, the Advanced Institute of Engineering and Technology. Professor hoped that in the coming time, the project and researchers will continue to cooperate with UET in particular and VNU in many other studies.

Professor. Dominique Laffly – Project Manager – presented the contents of the MONTUS project.

The main goal of the project is to develop and propose a framework of training programs for cloud computing in the environmental sciences towards sustainable environment. MONTUS project inherits the results of research and investment in calculated infrastructure from the TORUS project.
