Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology participates in Vietnam International Innovation Exhibition 2023 (VIIE 2023)

From 28/10 to 1/11/2023, at the operation base of the National Innovation Center (NIC) - Hoa Lac Hi-Tech Park, Vietnam International Innovation Exhibition 2023 (VIIE 2023) took place. The event was hosted by the Ministry of Planning and Investment, organized by NIC in collaboration with partners. VIIE 2023 portrays the "picture" of future technology converging intelligence, talents and resources from technology units, enterprises, research facilities, support organizations, incubators, domestic and international investment funds. The event marked an important milestone in the process of creating Vietnam's innovation ecosystem.

Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh visited the booth and showed interest in each technology product of Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology

With the leading position in scientific research and technological development of the whole country and meeting the theme of the International Exhibition, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology (VAST) introduces a number of S&T products that are being perfected in recent years in the fields of Industry 4.0 such as Internet of Things technology (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), new energy and medical technology. The exhibition booth of VAST has become a great attraction of delegates with "made in Vietnam" products and honored to welcome Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh to visit. Some outstanding products displayed at the event inlude:

In the field of automation, the application of artificial intelligence technology, intelligent robots created by the Institute of Physics serve in office reception communication; self-propelled with hand-mounted machine applications for medical, hazardous environments as well as automation models. 

Digital transformation is increasingly an urgent need of society to move towards e-Government, a cashless society is a premise for scientific products of the Institute of Physics and the Institute of Mechanics and Applied Informatics to be born and displayed at the exhibition such as: smart factory system, practical production management system for small and medium manufacturing enterprises of Vietnam,  IoT system automatic monitoring and control in industrial production, smart agriculture, smart home, environment... Along with that are software systems in the digital field with artificial intelligence such as: Shared S&T research data management and sharing platform software; Information systems for monitoring and managing agricultural, irrigation and biodiversity information; Solutions for monitoring and controlling the application of IoT technology in industrial production and smart agriculture; Application of AI models in supporting the location and classification of lung nodules on computed tomography, data monitoring and synthesis systems on the Internet and Socio-Economic Information Synthesis System.

The Institute of Materials Science mastered the technology and successfully manufactured proton exchange membrane electrolyzer (PEMWE), MEA membrane for hydrogen fuel cell system manufacturing. Note that using hydrogen energy is a new direction for the development of our country's energy industry, in line with the green energy direction that is of interest around the whole world.

The Institute of Chemical Technology offers artificial bone products α-Calcium Sulphate Hemihydrate (α-HH) and Biphasic Calcium Phosphate (BCP), Composite α-HH/BCP and Composite BCP/Silica, which have been applied in repairing and filling defects of bones/teeth through the release of calcium ions and other ions.

There are also many other products such as photocatalytic materials for artificial foil fabrication; Lyophilized injection system targeted Paclitaxel capsule liposomes (Lip@PTX), analgesic gel containing nano chili peppers, biochar from agricultural by-products such as coconut fiber, coconut shell, rice husk...

These results demonstrate the creativity of scientists of Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology, shifting the Institute's activities from asymptotic basic research to basic research oriented to application and technology development for human life. This is also reflected in the number of intellectual property diplomas that have been granted by the National Office of Intellectual Property in recent years. According to the Annual Report of the National Office of Intellectual Property, from January 1, 2023 to September 30, 2023, the Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology has been granted 59 patents for Inventions and Utility Solutions, increasing the total number of diplomas owned to more than 410 diplomas. These results demonstrate the policy of the leaders of Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology in striving to promote the development of basic research results oriented to practical application, creating motivation for the formation of the science and technology market in our country. 

With the spirit of innovation, the products brought to the event by Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology are the crystallization of long-term research of scientists with a solid basic research foundation that has created technological products suitable to the conditions of our country. However, in order to bring more practical benefits to social life, in the spirit of "Innovation – driving force for development", it is hoped that competent authorities will create favorable conditions with favorable mechanisms and policies to increase the ability to commercialize scientific and technological products. In addition, it is necessary to strengthen playgrounds – international and national exhibitions to connect supply and demand: scientists introduce their research results to the community and receive feedback from practice.
