Eight young Vietnamese scientists will attend the second Global Young Scientists Summit (GYSS) themed “Advancing Science, Creating Technologies for a Better World”, taking place in Singapore from January 19-21.

The conference, organised by the National Research Foundation (NRF), creates a forum for scientists under 35 to dialogue with Nobel laureates and former winners of the Turing Award, Millennium Technology Prize, and Fields Medal.

The organising board has invited a total of 375 doctorates and researchers from across the world, including 69 from Singaporean universities and institutes and 13 from ASEAN member countries.

Professor Low Teck Seng, NRF official and GYSS President, said he was very pleased to see more Vietnamese youth participating in international forums like GYSS.

This year’s summit will focus on the latest innovative scientific and technological advances and research and discuss solutions for global challenges.

There will also be seminars on basic science, such as chemistry, physics, mathematics, information technology and techniques.

A Singapore Challenge contest has been launched for young scientists to spur unique and creative initiatives for dealing with future development challenges.

The Singapore Challenge has received 35 proposals from scientists, including one from Vietnam.

There will also be an international scientific forum which has gathered the participation of 90 secondary school students and 31 educators from many countries around the world.
