The XIII Conference on Nuclear Science and Technology

The XIII Conference on Nuclear Science and Technology - 

From August 07 to 09, 2019, in Quang Ninh province, Vietnam Atomic Energy Institute (VINATOM) in cooperation with Quang Ninh Department of Science and Technology organized the XIII Nuclear Science and Technology Conference (VINANST-13).

In the Conference participated more than 40 domestic and foreign organizations with more than 400 scientists, specialists, experts, professors, post-graduates and students…from the domestic and oversea institutes, universities, management agencies and organizations relevant with atomic energy science and technology.

The Vietnam Nuclear Science and Technology Conference is an important event held once in every two years in activities for research, development and application of atomic energy in Vietnam. The conference is a place for scientists and leading experts at home and abroad to meet and exchange research results and new applications in the atomic science and technology. The conference is still also an opportunity for young researchers in the country to exchange and improve more the professional knowledge and other practical skills.

Dr. Pham Cong Tac. MoST Deputy Minister

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the conference, Dr. Pham Cong Tac, Deputy Minister of Science and Technology said: The Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST) is pleased to see a strong growth in size of organization size, number of delegates, especially the content and quality of scientific reports, in period from the XII held successfully in 2017 to the XIII Conference.

"We believe that the results of the Conference will contribute to orienting, building and implementing research and development programs, as well as strengthening and expanding international cooperation in atomic energy industry in Vietnam", Dr. Pham Cong Tac emphasized.
