26 Jul 2019

Inspired Potential, showcases outstanding research and innovation collaborations between leading Australian and Vietnamese universities, training providers and industry partners. The report identifies three significant collaborations in agribusiness, information technology and engineering, and analyses success factors as well as providing lessons learned.

Under a research and innovation project funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and managed by the Department of Education at the Australian Embassy in Vietnam, UTS Insearch was commissioned to undertake a report to identify outstanding and successful case studies of research and innovation collaboration between Australia and Vietnam.

The three case studies featured in this report provide a cross-section of innovative research with varying forms of collaboration, stages of progress, and in different fields of research, from high-tech agribusiness to cyber security and artificial intelligence.

These collaborations include:

  • agribusiness: utilising block chain technology for traceability and the internet of things for optimising farming
  • information technology: joint research undertaken in partnership with local industry for local impact, focusing on cyber security, data visualisation, and applications of artificial intelligence
  • engineering (prototyping): exploring software defined networking — the future of internet technology, and studying the application of block chain for the internet of things

Research and innovation partners featured in the report include Australian and Vietnamese businesses (Edifies Pty Ltd; TMA Solutions) and education providers (RMIT University, University of Technology Sydney, University of Adelaide; Vietnam National University — University of Engineering and Technology, Ho Chi Minh University of Technology).

In addition to providing details about each case study, the report also analyses success factors, providing lessons learned that enabled effective partnerships.
