Vietnam’s scientists and businesses actively discussed and shared their experiences in business incubation with those from high-tech countries around the world at an international conference held in Hanoi on August 6.

Vietnam needs to reinforce the incubation of science and technology businesses to develop the sector into a driving force to lever the country’s industrialisation and modernisation, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology Tran Van Tung said at the event which focused on science and technology business incubation at universities and research institutes.

The conference is a good opportunity for participants to exchange information and create future links between centres for science and technology business incubation, added Tung.

At the event, lecturers from Israel, Malaysia, Australia, the Hanoi-based Vietnam National University (VNU) and several enterprises delivered various speeches on technology commercialisation at universities and business incubation activities.-VNA
