Proactively engaging in and intensifying scientific research and international cooperation to elevate Phu Xuan University's stature.

Over the past two decades, marked by significant changes, since its transfer to the EQuest Group in 2018 with the aim of enhancing partnerships in the fields of scientific research and international cooperation, the University established the Department of Science, Technology, and International Cooperation in November 2020. The personnel of the Department include one head, two permanent staff members, and two adjunct professors. With the goal of enhancing faculty scientific research to move towards international integration, the Department of Scientific Research and International Cooperation has implemented various activities since its establishment.

Thanks to the emphasis on scientific research activities, the outcomes related to the scientific research endeavors of faculty members and students have significantly improved in recent years. Specifically, in the past, the number of general scientific research works and those with collaborative partners was quite limited. However, from 2018 to 2023, substantial progress has been made, including 5 collaborative projects, 2 jointly written books, 6 collaborative projects, over 60 jointly written papers, and 4 articles published in jointly written proceedings. Several projects initiated by faculty and students have garnered attention and investment from the university to boost the research momentum.

Furthermore, the international cooperation efforts of Phu Xuan University have been a major focus and have seen substantial development from 2018 to the present. Throughout its 20-year history of formation and growth, the university has never been as actively engaged in opening its doors, seeking, and welcoming numerous foreign delegations. On average, the university hosts nearly 30 international delegations annually for visits and exploration of collaboration opportunities, including delegations from the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, and more. The university also takes the initiative to send many faculty members for study and exchange experiences abroad, including visits to Thailand, China, the United States, Indonesia,... 

Every year, the university facilitates internships for students in Thailand and China.

Moreover, the number of international collaborative projects has continuously expanded in recent years. Noteworthy are the international projects that the university has undertaken from 2019 to the present. Specifically, the university is actively involved in projects serving the community, such as the "Empowering Ethnic Minority Youth in Vietnam to Re-Vision the Future of Decent Work" (Re-WORK) project. This project aims to enhance the status and capabilities of ethnic minority students in Vietnam to reorient them towards suitable future employment. Phu Xuan University is one of the four main partners approved by the British Academy; the "Monitoring Trends In Vietnamese Employment" (MOTIVE) project, which focuses on researching the employment situation of graduates in Vietnam and making recommendations for policy innovation and improving the quality of university education in Vietnam. This project is supported by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union. The "Supporting the Integration and Access of Students with Disabilities at Universities in the ASEAN Network" (ALIGN) project has also been approved by the Global Challenges Research Fund and the Institute of Health Sciences.
