Abstract: In the former centralized command economy, Vietnam’s R&D institutes were mechanically designed with simple functional models and simple organizational structures. During the transition to the market economy, this model became inadaptable to the rapidly changing environment. Therefore, the R&D institutes had to adjust themselves to a more flexible functional model with structural diversification. This has also been the inevitable trend of the autonomous institution in science.
