The Golden Globe Awards are presented to celebrate Vietnamese talent under the age of 35 with formidable accomplishments in information & communications, medical & pharmaceutical, bio, environmental and new materials technologies. The award is intended to promote competitiveness, in-depth study and research, and the application of science & technology applications in everyday life.

This year, 51 submissions were received, 45 from 19 institutions and 6 potentials. Many of the papers had already been published in established international journals with SCI/SCIE/ISI and Q1-Q4 rankings. The candidates included Vietnamese researchers working at well-known foreign institutions abroad, such as the UK, South Korea and Austria.

Young Dr. Tam has already left a deep impression with his research. Most noteworthy are his 17 publications in international journals, 10 in national ones and 6 from the proceedings of international and local conferences. Dr. Tam was the coauthor of one chapter of a monograph published by SPi Technologies in India in 2020.

Dr. Tam has also won prizes for the best presentations at international conferences, such as a third prize at the in Vitro Biology meeting in Raleigh, North Carolina, in 2017; a second the 3rd International Orchid Symposium in Seoul, South Korea, in 2018; and two others at conferences in South Korea.

Apart from his love for research, Dr. Tam is also engaged in several other roles; as the Department of Biology Union Deputy-Secretary at Dalat University, from 2009 to 2011; Section President of the Vietnamese Students’ Association at Chungbuk National University in South Korea, from 2015 to 2017; and Vice-Chairman of Communications for the Vietnam Football Association in Korea, from 2019 to 2020.

“I am delighted with the award but, at the same time, feel pressured to honor its value and live up to its reputation”, said Dr. Tam. “In addition to my hard work and the support of my colleagues, DTU has provided me with the security I need with their excellent remuneration policy. I’m trying to develop national and international partnerships and create a research team right here at the university, to share ideas and conduct further research in the near future.”
