Young physiologists meet in Quy Nhon city

As many as 290 leading professors, young scientists and businesses operating in biology are gathering in Quy Nhon city, the central coastal province of Binh Dinh, for the Third Rencontres de Quy Nhon - Biology Conference 2020.

This annual event, from December 11-13, is part of the scientific activities of the 16th Rencontres du Vietnam.

During this meeting, the participants will look at more than 200 reports in such spheres as medicine-biology-pharmacy, bio-chemistry, and plant biology, agriculture and environment.

The event looks towards multi-sectoral cooperation in scientific research and the formation of a network of scientists to exchange research experience, and build partnerships in order to get the most updated scientific knowledge.

The highlight of this year’s event is the formation of the Scientific Advisory Committee that brings together 11 leading professors from different research and academic institutions across Vietnam.

Founded in 1993 by Jean Tran Thanh Van, Rencontres du Vietnam, a non-profit organisation and an official partner of UNESCO, aims to step up international exchanges between Vietnam and the international community, particularly in the areas of science and education.

It is also set to promote the integration of Vietnamese scientists into the international scientific community, as well as the passion for science among the youngsters./.
