    • Implementing the contract with the Department of Science and Technology of the South provinces.
    • Besides doing basic research, ITB is also focusing on advanced technology development activities, application of scientific results into practice and have recently achieved many successes. At the present, ITB has obtained over 20 types of products being commercialized at the local market, and 10 products of which (leaf fertilizers and flowering, fruit-set stimulators) were introduced in the permit list of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. In 2011, total revenue from the activities of scientific and technological services is 3.330 billion VND.
    • The activities above based on 4 main researches:
    • Plant cell technology and Plant genetic engineering.
    • Animal biotechnology
    • Bioactive compounds technology, Bio conversion technology, Environmental and Microbiology.
    • Ecology and Biological resources.
