Laboratory

ACROSS International Joint Laboratory (IJL) is financed by the four partners of the project including UMMISCO – an International Joint Unit of IRD – French Institute of Research for Development; Thuy Loi University – the leading University on water resources and environmental management, disaster prevention and mitigation in Vietnam; IRIT – one of the largest French Computer Science laboratories and Hanoi Architectural University (HAU) – the first architectural university in Vietnam, founded in 1969 and under the administration of the Ministry of Construction. 

Located at 5th floor, A1 Building, Thuy Loi University, 175 Tay Son Street, Dong Da District, Hanoi, ACROSS has a separate space consisting of 240 m² of co-working area with one seminar room, one meeting room fully equipped for video conference. The laboratory was designed towards an open and creative environment which helps encourage mutual interactions and allows up to 40 people working at the same time. The highlight lies in the terrace, an open air space with a great view to the city. An exhibition area is set separately where people can experience different participatory and interactive simulations.

ACROSS IJL welcomes a number of French researchers and experts from short term (2 to 11 months) to long term assignments (2 to 4 years) as well as Vietnamese counterparts to work on different subjects. This gathering is expected to pave the way for multidisciplinary collaboration opportunities for students, lecturers and researchers.
