Promoting EU-Thailand science initiatives
(Nanowerk News) NANOTEC researchers participated as speakers during the visit of science journalist from 8 European nations. The visit is organized under the umbrella of the FP7 funded SEA-EU-NET project, in which NSTDA is a partner, and the ASEAN-EU Year of Science, Technology and Innovation 2012.
"I think that the evolving relationship between Thailand and the EU reflects the changing role that S&T has come to play" said Dr. Thaweesak Koanantakool, President of NSTDA. "In less than 10 years the number of Thailand and EU co-published research papers have climbed to 700 co-publications. This is a significant increase".
The objective of the journalists' visit is to gain knowledge to S&T landscape in the region and identify areas for potential for cooperation between the two regions.
