Funding the future

Science and technology are playing a larger and larger role in our everyday lives, as some of the world’s most pressing challenges have been thrown into stark relief. While the world has witnessed many breakthroughs recently, without robust support for researchers in STEM, they may never have seen the light of day. Contributions to STEM such as the VinFuture Prize have the power to catalyse change, funding research that addresses our biggest problems and seeks to create a better future for all.


Professor Jennifer Tour Chayes, University of California, Berkeley

“The VinFuture Prize is the new vanguard: it’s the first of the major prizes to focus on the impact to humanity so explicitly, focusing on how science and technology can create a better world for all. This is a major prize at the level of the Nobel, Millennium, and Turing”.

Professor Sir Kostya S.Novoselov FRS, Winner of 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics

“It is often happens that scientists from developing countries do not get the recognition they deserve simply because their voice is not heard as well as it is deserved to be heard. The VinFuture prize was developed exactly to change this, to equilibrate the situation.”

Professor-Sir Richard Henry Friend – University of Cambridge

“We now recognize that science and technology must deliver benefit to all peoples and all nations. The VinFuture Prizes will recognize those whose brilliant science or engineering can have positive impact on the lives of millions of people across the planet.”
