This dialogue is a highly inspirational and intellectual and once-in-a-lifetime event. Taking place right after the VinFuture Prize Award Ceremony, the dialogue offers a chance for Grand Prize and Special Prize winners to share stories about their journeys to scientific breakthroughs and innovations. It also sheds light on their personal endeavors, what has motivated them to pursue the challenging scientific path, the eureka moments, the obstacles, and difficulties they have overcome, and the changes their innovations have brought to life.

The Scientific Dialogue with the inaugural VinFuture Prize Laureates will take place on the morning of January 21st, 2022 at VinUniversity (Hanoi).
