2nd Tokyo Tech Research Showcase held

An ANNEX Bangkok event, Tokyo Tech Research Showcase is intended to introduce Tokyo Tech’s high-impact research in science and technology and to accelerate the Institute's collaboration with universities and businesses in Thailand. The 2020 Tokyo Tech Research Showcase was held as a webinar on September 15.
Conducted for the second time since 2019, the Research Showcase was co-sponsored by the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) of Thailand and supported by Tokyo Tech Alumni Association in Thailand (Thai Kuramae Kogyokai). Approximately 150 persons from various organizations in Thai academia, industry, and government joined the webinar, which also attracted participants from Japan and Germany.

The topic of the 2020 event was Biotechnology for Industrial Use. Agriculture and Biotechnology and Biofuels and Biochemicals are key industries under the Thai government's Thailand 4.0 economic policy, and NSTDA is leading a research and development project to build a biorefinery plant in the Eastern Economic Corridor of Innovation (EECi). Research in related fields is receiving a great deal of attention in Thailand.

Following opening remarks by Tokyo Tech Executive Vice President Tetsuya Mizumoto and NSTDA Executive Vice President Chadamas Thuvasethakul, four leading Tokyo Tech researchers introduced cutting edge technology.

Metabolic engineering for microbial synthesis of biodegradable polyesters from biomass resources,

Professor Toshiaki Fukui, School of Life Science and Technology
