Associate Prof. Dr. Mai Thanh Phong, Vice Rector of VNUHCM-University of Technology, said that in recent years, the school has held many conferences and forums on science and technology, but there were not many opportunities for young scientists and students to take. This young science and technology conference was organized to create opportunities for exchanges and sharing experiences in research, start-up and innovation between young cadres and international, and domestic students.
It is expected that the conference will be held every two years.
