This book provides an overview of the science, technology, and innovation (STI) policies in Vietnam in a globalized world. Science, technology and innovation policies play important roles in boosting research and development, promoting entrepreneurship and building national innovation systems, especially in developing countries.

Each chapter of the book includes intensive studies and analyses of the STI system and policies in Vietnam, providing valuable arguments and essential tools for students, researchers, and policy makers in the field of science and technology management, political science, public policy and business studies.
