Location: via Zoom
Register online before: 17 December, 2022
Topic: Resilient Agriculture Session in the New Normal
Climate change affects agriculture and the agricultural economy as a “new normal” for the socio-economic system of each country and the whole world. For agriculture to develop sustainably in this new normal, it is necessary to invest systematically in science-technology and socio-economic policies.

The “Science for Life” Symposium assembles and connects the Vietnamese sci-tech community with local and international top scientists, policymakers, entrepreneurs. The symposium will have three consecutive 90-minute panels, each focusing on one of the following critical issues for the world: sustainable agriculture in the new normal, advanced materials for future energy storage, and personalized therapy in cancer treatment. The panel on each of these topics will focus on the pressing global issues, the practical solutions, and predictions of key changes in people’s lives through the contributions of science and technology.
