Aus4Innovation is celebrating the remarkable contribution of women to innovation, research and sustainable development in Vietnam and around the world.
Outstanding women scientists are leading three of the seven pilots in our science commercialisation activities, when we partner research teams with the private sector to optimise market opportunities and community benefit in agriculture sector.
They have shared thoughts about their research and how they would like their work to be used.
