“The second round of Aus4Innovation Partnership Grants demonstrates our continued commitment to work with the Government of Vietnam – in particularly Ministry of Science and Technology – to further enhance the innovation ecosystem. As in the previous round, we will support innovative ideas in different sectors that have potential for wide-scale application, will deliver lasting socioeconomic impact, and can help strengthen the Vietnamese innovation ecosystem.” – said H.E. Ms Robyn Mudie, Australian Ambassador to Vietnam. 

“It is exciting to witness the great partnerships created in the first round of this grant scheme as they scale up novel technologies and proven innovation models in Vietnam. I look forward to more partnerships of this nature; where Australian and Vietnamese partners continue working together to address challenges and create opportunities in our growing economy. Programs like Aus4Innovation are enhancing Vietnam’s innovation ecosystem, making it better connected so it functions more effectively.” – Vice Minister of Science and Technology, Bui The Duy added.
