About the Aus4Innovation Program
Aus4Innovation is an AUD$16.5 million development assistance program that aims to strengthen Vietnam’s innovation system, prepare for and embrace opportunities associated with Industry 4.0, and help shape Vietnam’s innovation agenda in science and technology.
Through the Aus4Innovation program, Australia and Vietnam will work together to explore emerging areas of technology and digital transformation, trial new models for partnerships between public and private sector institutions, and strengthen Vietnamese capability in digital foresight, scenario planning, commercialisation, and innovation policy.
The Aus4Innovation Program is one of five initiatives of the Australian Government’s Aus4Vietnam investment:
CSIRO’s Data61 and Vietnam’s Ministry of Science and Technology have prepared a report looking at Vietnam’s Future Digital Economy.
Innovation Partnership Grants
Funding is available at certain times throughout the year for Australian and Vietnamese businesses.
Science Commercialisation Partnerships
A team from CSIRO is working with MoST’s NATEC to pilot activities to improve the uptake of new technology by Vietnamese agribusiness.
The Innovation Policy Exchange activities will focus on collaboration to address emerging challenges in the implementation of Vietnam’s innovation agenda.
