The deputy PM made the request as he attended a meeting on December 25 to review the implementation of the 2011-2020 strategy on science and technology development over the past five years.
At the meeting, Deputy PM Dam underlined the important role of large universities and research institutes in this task in the long term.
He said a great deal of efforts have been made, citing that Vietnam jumped 19 places on the global innovation rankings, but results still fell short of expectations and urged the MOST to innovate and take bold measures to overcome its own shortcomings.
The deputy PM noted that the MOST should introduce appropriate measures to encourage enterprises to participate in scientific and technological research activities that meet their needs.
He said enterprises should take a central role to attract universities and research institutes to the national innovation system while the State should only play a supportive role./.
