NDO – The Hanoi History Association (HHA) and Vietnam Union of Science and Technology Associations (VUSTA) on June 29 announced the establishment of the Centre for Heritage Research and Conservation.


Chairman of HHA Dr. Nguyen Van Son said that over the past few years the association has conducted a lot of work related to heritage conservation but it needs legal status to gather leading scientists, leading to the establishment of the centre.

Currently, it has gathered 16 leading experts to participate in the work related to research and preservation of heritages in Hanoi and across the country.

The centre, which is under the management of HHA, operates in the fields of science and technology, history, archeology, and museology. It also performs services including science and technology advice for conservation and preservation of relics and restoring historic culture; providing training and scientific and technological information; and organising conferences, symposiums and international co-operation in history.

The centre also co-operates with experts, researchers, and scientists to carry out research in the fields of history, archeology, museums, and preservation, while consulting and organising research activities and conservation of national cultural heritage values.

The center will organise compilation, printing and distribution of publications related to cultural heritages; hold competitions on historical landmarks, heritages and traditional villages; collect and translate history documents related to cultural heritages; and collaborate with domestic and foreign institutions to provide training in the field of research and conservation of cultural heritages.
