The inauguration week of the National Innovation Centre (NIC), run by the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), will take place from October 28.
On August 15, the MPI organised a press conference for the Vietnam International Innovation Exhibition 2023 (VIIE 2023) and the NIC Hoa Lac centre inauguration ceremony.
VIIE 2023 is taking place over five days from October 28 to November 1. It will gather hundreds of leading tech businesses from around the country and overseas, and leaders of state-run authorities, institutes, universities, funds, and consultant organisations.
Around 40,000 visitors will be in attendance, and various activities covering smart factories and cities, digital communication, environmental technologies, cybersecurity, semiconductors, hydrogen, and health will be shown off.
Alongside this, there will be international workshops on semiconductors, hydrogen energy, and the gaming industry, as well as the Vietnam Venture Summit and a STEM contest.
VIIE is set up to allow guests to connect, exchange information, and expand opportunities for cooperation, research, and investment. The exhibition will create a space to share innovative ideas, honour tech products with high applicability, and strengthen connections between professionals, businesses, and the community.
The inauguration of the NIC headquarters in the Hoa Lac High-Tech Industrial Park will mark a significant milestone after two years of construction. The ceremony will be attended by Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.
NIC Hoa Lac, along with a further two office blocks, will provide an environment to promote innovation and improve the startup ecosystem. The campus is modern and will boast advanced equipment to gather the talent required to make the region a top destination for cutting-edge development.
