Training is an integral part of IRD's missions to its partners and, more generally, to Vietnam. If part of it is given during summer schools or project-specific training sessions, the majority is nevertheless carried out in the more conventional form of lectures for Bachelor, Master or PhD students in partner universities or supervised internships (Bachelor or Master) and PhD theses.

IRD also offers a support for doctoral students (ARTS scholarships) which allows them to finance all or part of their thesis.


  • INOWASIA Erasmus+ project for Water-Oriented Jobs in Southeast Asia (2021-2024)


    INOWASIA creates a pluridisciplinary water-oriented education program bringing together water science, soil science, biological science and eco-engineering. INOWASIA aims to develop free on-line basic and advanced water courses, implemented in the existing master’s degrees and PhD programs of Higher Education Institutions from Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. INOWASIA brings a new way of education in the SEA universities through the promotion of PBL (Problem based Learning) and WOLL (Water Oriented Living Lab). INOWASIA trains students and teachers, and promotes the implementation of innovative hybrid methods, combining on-line formation with problem-based learning, a student-centred educational methodology that promotes the development of personal abilities and skills.

    INOWASIA aims to foster entrepreneur and business culture among the students and future young water professionals through field trips, short visits to success cases among local initiatives, and long stay internships in water companies and administrations. At last, INOWASIA promotes an international multilevel network of students, academics, professionals, and stakeholders in the field of water resources to encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration to find new and creative solutions to water challenges, through the Academic and Professional Committee (APC).

    INOWASIA is an ERASMUS+ project funded for 4 years (2021-2024) and co-managed by the University of Girona (Spain), the Fundation for Science of the University of Barcelona (Spain), the University of Toulouse (France) and the IRD (France). 

    Six SEA universities participate:

    In Vietnam:

    • Hanoi University of Science (HUS)
    • Can Tho University (CTU)

    In Laos:

    • National University of Laos (NUOL)
    • Souphanouvong University (SU)

    In Cambodia:

    • Institut de Technologie du Cambodge (ITC)
    • National University of Battambang (NUBB)
