City seeks to boost technology transfer from universities

Huynh Kim Tuoc, managing director of the Saigon Innovation Hub’s Start-up Support Centre in Ho Chi Minh City, affirmed that Vietnam holds tremendous potential for technology development and transfer thanks to its highly qualified experts and intellectuals with rich experience in this field, especially young and talented human resources at universities, reports VNA.

Tuoc said this at a recent workshop in Ho Chi Minh City on promoting the establishment of technology transfer offices in universities, which was co-organised by the Saigon Innovation Hub, Australia’s University of Technology Sydney and Singapore’s leading incubator fund Expara.

The workshop attracted a large number of domestic and foreign experts, and representatives of universities in the southern provinces and cities to exchange, discuss and assess the current situation, advantages, difficulties and challenges as well as propose effective models and solutions that bring practical benefits from the establishment of technology transfer offices at universities.
