Hanoi (VNA) - A workshop promoting trade in Chemical-Pharmaceutical Technology and Medical Equipment took place in Hanoi on November 23.

The event was jointly arranged by the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST), the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) and Australia’s Aus4Innovation Programme.

At the workshop, the VAST introduced 10 most outstanding medical products researched in the past two years to promote cooperation and technology transfer with firms, together with product commercialisation. 

Businesses can place orders with scientists from the VAST to study solutions to address their current challenges. This is the first time that the VAST has changed its approach to match with entrepreneurs’ concern, said Assoc. Prof., Dr Phan Tien Dung of the institute.

Scientists at the event responded to queries fielded by businesses, expressing their hope to collaborate with pharmaceutical firms to manufacture and distribute herbal products to the market.

The VAST over the years has stepped up cooperation with firms as well as innovation work so as to translate research activities into reality, address challenges and sharpen competitive edge of domestic firms and the country as a whole.

The institute received "Innovation Award” in South and Southeast Asia by the UK’s Clarivate in 2020 and this year./.
