The Vietnam Industry Innovation Research (VIIR) is a joint initiative between VinUniversity and the Portulans Institute (PI). PI was founded and presided by Professor Soumitra Dutta, Dean of the Saïd Business School at Oxford University, originator of the Global Innovation Index (GII), and a member of the VinFuture Prize Council. This project aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of industry innovation for Vietnam.

The VIIR report is a comprehensive examination of the industry innovation landscape in Vietnam, brought to you through a pioneering collaboration between VinUni and Portulans Institute (PI). This report presents the results of our original research, shedding light on the dynamics and intricacies of Vietnam’s innovation ecosystem.

Our analysis is divided into two distinct categories, each offering unique insights into Vietnam’s industry innovation landscape. In the first category, we provide a comparative assessment of Vietnam alongside 17 other economies, offering a macro perspective that unveils the strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities within Vietnam’s innovation ecosystem. This broad comparison sets the stage for a deeper understanding of Vietnam’s position in the global innovation landscape.

The second category focuses on the findings derived from an extensive survey conducted among over 500 managers working in three key industries: hospitality, healthcare, and retail commercial lease. By delving into the unique ecosystems within these organizations, we uncover the crucial elements that constitute Vietnam’s innovation environment. These findings provide invaluable knowledge for future research endeavors, offering a rich source of data for further exploration and study. Beyond the academic sphere, these results hold significant value for policymakers, industry leaders, and stakeholders. They can utilize this data when crafting plans and policies to foster innovation and drive sustainable growth across the country. Consequently, this information benefits not only present strategies but also provides critical insights for future policy development and industry direction.

We invite you to delve into the details of the VIIR report, exploring its comprehensive analysis, nuanced insights, and actionable recommendations. To access the full report and dive deeper into the findings, please download the complete document.
