With a comprehensive vision aimed at promoting diversity and a mission to benefit humanity by making positive changes in the lives of billions worldwide, VinFuture has triumphantly orchestrated three seasons, solidifying its esteemed reputation and standing within the global scientific community. Over the course of three years, the Prize has witnessed a three-fold surge in nominations, rising from 599 innovations in its inaugural year to an impressive 1,389 innovations in 2023.
To participate in the 2023 VinFuture Prize, scientific and technological innovations and solutions must fully meet the Prize’s nomination criteria* and be nominated by prestigious organizations or individuals in the field of science and technology worldwide. Nominated applications will be screened, shortlisted, and selected by the VinFuture Prize’s Pre-Screening Committee and Prize Council, composed of leading scientists and experts who have won prestigious awards, such as Nobel, Turing, and Millennium Technology prizes.
Sharing on the fourth VinFuture Prize award season, Prof. Sir Richard Henry Friend, Chair of the VinFuture Prize Council, shared: “The broad scope of the four VinFuture prizes is well illustrated by the three sets of winners for 2021, 2022, and 2023. We have recognised breakthrough advances across many different areas, including in agriculture, in human health, in climate science, in global information technologies, and in renewable energy systems – solar cells for generation, Lithium-ion batteries for storage. We are very grateful to thousands who have responded to our invitations, and we have had a broad and rich set of innovations to consider. We do want to reach even more widely, to find out about advances happening across the whole world, not just in well-established research environments.”
The deadline for nomination submissions for the 2024 VinFuture Prize is 2:00 PM, April 17th, 2024 (Vietnam Time, GMT +7). Nominations received after this deadline will be considered for the following year.

The first webinar is scheduled for January 24th, 2024, from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM (Vietnam time, GMT+7). Interested parties can register for the webinar by visiting this link:
