Developing knowledge regarding sustainable construction in the National University of Civil Engineering of Vietnam (NUCE)

International collaboration is one of the most effective ways for solving sustainable development problems. This paper briefly introduces the current situation on sustainable construction in Vietnam and some research trends for development of sustainable construction research at three Universities - the National University of Civil Engineering (Vietnam), Loughborough University (UK) and the University of Liverpool (UK). The paper presents preliminary work undertaken by the three universities to implement the British Council-funded DelPHE 743 project on developing knowledge regarding sustainable construction in the National University of Civil Engineering of Vietnam (NUCE).
