Assoc. Prof. Dr. Phan Tien Dung, Head of Technology Application and Deployment Department, gave the opening speech at the workshop
This conference was held with a new approach. For the first time, Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology changed the presentation of the product introduction in association with commercial goals in line with the interests of businesses and entrepreneurs. Within the framework of the workshop, there are 9 medical technology products selected to be introduced among many research products in the last 2 years, such as DECHOLES product that supports the treatment of atherosclerosis from active ingredients from natural sources; CAFETASO products supporting the treatment of kidney stones and gallstones from Vietnamese plants; LUMBROKINASE products supporting the treatment of anti-clotting blood vessels; preparations to support diabetes treatment from bitter melon and rhubarb; equipment for thermal massage - pharmaceutical therapy to restore muscle - bone - joint function; cold plasma equipment for dentists.
Some products on display at the conference
At the workshop, scientists and businesses had a frank exchange of products, technology, cost, and product development direction close to actual needs, serving society.
Presenting product introduction and research at the workshop
The workshop was lively and successful. The organization of technology commercialization promotion activities will contribute to the formation of scientific research products associated with reality, creating motivation for scientists to explore, create, and pursue products to the end. Accordingly, businesses can exchange directly with scientists, learn more about actual needs and development solutions; and at the same time, request scientists of Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology to research and solve their practical needs.
This is also a stepping stone to create an innovation ecosystem, where managers - scientists - businesses "symbiotically" share and complement each other.
