HANOI, VIETNAM - Media OutReach - 15 March 2023 - The VinFuture Foundation has officially launched the InnovaTalk 2023 webinar series, covering highly applied fields such as agriculture, health, smart transportation, and emerging technological trends.

The webinars will be held regularly from March to November.


The VinFuture Foundation is organizing the InnovaTalk webinar series to connect outstanding minds to domestic and global scientists and enterprises.

The webinars will also feature discussions presented by distinguished guest speakers from well-known worldwide academic institutions including universities and research organizations, as well the participation of leading experts from academia and enterprises from Vietnam.

Through these webinars, the VinFuture Foundation hopes to elevate the importance of various fields of science and technology, as well as evaluate the practicality and potential of applying such technology in Vietnam. At the same time, the Foundation also seeks to encourage and promote the contribution and role of Vietnamese scientists in the global innovation chain.

"The InnovaTalk webinar series had an incredible response, with approximately 200 researchers and experts attending each webinar last year. As a bridge of knowledge, we are now increasing the number of webinars for this year. Our goal is to bring together the world's leading minds in science and technology, providing those who are passionate about science with the opportunity to interact with global experts and learn about today's most pressing topics and emerging trends," said Dr. Thai-Ha Le, Managing Director of the VinFuture Prize.
