HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Science and Technology and Xinova signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Wednesday to establish a global innovation centre in Việt Nam to connect Vietnamese innovators with the global innovative network for greater creative ideas.
The centre, according to Minister of Science and Technology Chu Ngọc Anh, will serve as a bridge connecting local groups and businesses with a network of more than 12,000 global scientists and innovators.
It will also create conditions for Vietnamese scientists and engineers to join the network. Technology management officers and those working in the innovation sector in Việt Nam will have opportunities to learn from the world’s newest solutions aiming to boost innovation.
Science, technology and innovation are the driving forces of the economy and contribute to improving competitiveness and global integration of enterprises. The MoU has demonstrated the efforts of the Ministry of Science and Technology to promote innovation in Việt Nam, the minister said.
“We are proud of working with the Ministry of Science and Technology to facilitate Vietnamese innovators to demonstrate their reputation,” said Yong Sung Kim, Xinova president in South Korea and South East Asia.
Xinova, a corporation with a network of 12,000 innovators and experts, is operating in nine countries worldwide. It partners with customers and inventors to think beyond the confines of their organisations and solve big problems. — VNS
