With the desire to provide useful information on Japanese science and technology to a large number of Vietnamese people living in Vietnam and abroad, the Vietnamese Academic Network in Japan (VANJ) officially launched a project, namely “Japanese Science and Technology compendium” in 2019. This project is a non-profit project, expected to run for many years in the future, with the aim of periodic publications. Its first volume, published in 2021 (ISBN: 978-604-67-2024-9) with 35 articles covering nine fields, made a significant contribution to support the implementation and promote the consulting, supporting activities for research cooperation and technology transfer.

The second volume will be released in 2023 on the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam-Japan relationship. These publications will be posted on VANJ’s channels, and all content will be freely accessible to readers.
