On March 6, 2017, Tokyo Tech held an industry-academia collaboration symposium with the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) at Thailand Science Park in Pathum Thani, Thailand.
At the request of the Thai government, TAIST-Tokyo Tech was established in 2007 to form research and development centers and promote technical innovation across Asia. The symposium was organized in response to the recent economic growth of Thailand and the fact that more than 2,000 Japanese companies have set up factories or offices there.
Executive Vice President Toshio Maruyama and six other members from Tokyo Tech spoke on research activities in various scientific areas and research collaborations with industry. Researchers from NSTDA and TAIST partner universities also gave presentations on their research activities with Tokyo Tech faculty. Dr. Narong Sirilertworakul, president of NSTDA, gave the closing remarks.
With nearly 100 participants from both industry and academia present at the symposium, further enhancement of research collaboration between Tokyo Tech and industry in Thailand is expected.
