The ministry will promote the application of information technology in management and implementation of scientific and technological tasks, strengthen financial discipline, increase publicity and transparency in the use of state science, technology and innovation budgets. In particular, the ministry will devise specific mechanisms and policies to promote the strong development of science and technology in order to create breakthroughs in improving productivity, quality, efficiency and competitiveness.

Minister of Science and Technology Huynh Thanh Dat said obstacles in mechanisms and policies, especially in the use of state budgets, have hindered the strong development of science and technology and prevented the sector from achieving the desired results.

In addition to obstacles in mechanisms and policies, transfer and commercialization of research results also face difficulties, Dat said, adding that changes in thinking and management methods are crucial to promoting the application of new technologies and business models.

Given limited resources, one of the most effective solutions is to increase transparency and objectivity in the management of scientific and technological topics and tasks at all levels. Therefore, the Ministry of Science and Technology is reviewing and amending regulations on the management and evaluation of scientific and technological tasks with an orientation to publicity, transparency and objectivity, together with simplifying administrative procedures.

In 2022, the Ministry of Science and Technology will continue to complete the legal corridor to facilitate the development of science, technology and innovation.
