V-KIST has a team of highly qualified scientists with modern facilities, high self-reliance mechanisms and advanced management procedures. V-KIST's mission is to become a leading multi-disciplinary institution in applied science research and development of modern technology.
As Korea's largest non-refundable aid project in Vietnam, V-KIST is expected to boost cooperation in science and technology between the two countries. Modelling on the Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KIST), V-KIST is hoped to become a leading provider of technology solutions for enterprises in Vietnam.
V-KIST also has a specific financial mechanism to attract highly qualified foreign scientists and overseas Vietnamese scientists.
Speaking at the inaugural ceremony, Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam said that the birth of V-KIST has met the urgent need for a strong reform of the management mechanisms and working methods in scientific research in Vietnam, contributing to quickly and effectively applying achievements of science and technology into life, business and production.
