Vietnam, Germany boost co-operation in science and technology

VOV.VN - The Vietnam-Germany Innovation Network (VGI) and Bach Khoa Hanoi Technology Investment and Development One Member Company Limited (BK-HOLDINGS) signed an agreement on December 22 to strengthen co-operation in the fields of science, technology, and innovation.

The agreement was inked online at the headquarters of the Vietnamese Embassy in Berlin in the presence of representatives of the Ministry of Science and Technology, the National Startup Support Center (NSSC), and a support network of Vietnamese science and technology offices abroad.

Under the agreement, both sides have agreed to provide information and consultancy on activities related to science, technology, and innovation, including the organisation of co-operation programmes and the implementation of joint projects.

Addressing the event, Tran Hai Thanh, first secretary in charge of science and technology at the Vietnamese Embassy in Germany, highlighted support of the intellectual network and Vietnamese community in Germany for the development of science and technology at home.

The diplomat added that over recent times the VGI has attracted the participation of numerous experts, intellectuals, and scientists, many of whom have contributed to connecting Vietnamese technology experts in Germany with German individuals, groups, and companies to support sci-tech development in Vietnam.

The newly-signed agreement is expected to connect Vietnamese intellectuals abroad, optimise human resources, promote innovation and start-ups at home, while simultaneously ramping up co-operation in science, technology, and innovation among partners of the two countries, he noted.
