The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) is actively coordinating with relevant agencies and institutions to develop a national database system on science and technology, which is stipulated in Decree 11/2014/NĐ-CP.
More specifically, MOST already issued Circular 14/2014/TT-BKHCN regulating on the collection, registration, storage, and publication of information on science and technology tasks and Circular 10/2017/TT-BKHCN on the establishment, management, exploitation, use, maintenance, and development of a national database on science and technology. In addition, the Ministry is constructing a Circular on guiding the management of the National Technology Innovation Programme up to 2030 including content about establishing a database on technology, technological experts, technology supply sources, and technology demand. The Circular is expected to be released in the 3rd quarter of 2021. Furthermore, MOST is updating information about science and equipment, technological products and services, experts on science and technology, etc on the website: www.techmartvietnam.vn. In the meantime, the Ministry also provides information about research results on science and technology and database on technology and equipment on the website: https://vista.gov.vn/
The national database system is expected to promote information access, transparency of science and technology activities, serve for planning and decision-making process, and avoid overlapping in research studies and plagiarism.
