A total of 58 scientific research works by under-graduate students in Ho Chi Minh City have been honoured at the annual Eureka awards – a scientific research contest for students in the city.

The works were selected among 1,600 research projects submitted by students from 34 local universities between February and December this year.

The contest, the 15 th of its kind organised by the City’s Communist Youth Union and Ho Chi Minh City National University, aims to create a playground for local students to pilot their ideas and innovations, thus stimulating research activities in tertiary training establishments in the city.

A number of activities were concurrently held within the event on December 14 include a seminar on student’s scientific research, and an exchange among award winners from previous years, among others.-VNA
