Speaking at the opening ceremony, Dr Nguyen Manh Hai, Counsellor in charge of investment at the Vietnamese Embassy in Germany, underlined that the establishment of VINEU will offer a platform to intellectuals and scientists in Europe to share knowledge and experience in science and technology, thereby contributing to innovation and socio-economic development in Vietnam.

Deputy Minister of Planning and Investment Tran Huy Dong said the establishment of the VINEU is hoped to enhance access to technology and innovation in European nations via Vietnamese experts, as well as expand opportunities in cooperation, investment and trade for Vietnam’s innovation activities, notably in the fields of artificial intelligence, big data and health care.

Director of the Vietnam National Innovation Centre (NIC) Vu Quoc Huy said the NIC, with a network of nearly 1,000 experts and intellectuals across the globe, will continue to support activities of the VINEU and its affiliates to foster Vietnam’s innovation work in the coming time.

Representatives of some businesses and organisations of Vietnam and Europe also shared innovation activities, research studies and products at a seminar held on the sidelines of the launch event./.
