Organised for the eighth year by the National Research Council of Thailand, the Thailand Research Expo 2013 will showcase 600 research works from across the country which reflect the innovative ideas and efforts to bring about sustainable growth to the nation, at Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre, CentralWorld, from Aug 23-27.
Held under the theme "Research for the sustainable development of quality of life, economy and society", the five-day event will feature research by His Majesty the King and members of the royal family that have greatly improved the livelihood of the people. Also on display are the 600 outstanding research works from the private and public sectors - many of which can be further developed into value-added products.
Among the highlights are robots for autistic children, Warangkun Rice blood-absorbent pads, and an asthma inhaler _ all of which won awards from the 41st International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
To make it convenient for the public to gain access to the knowledge base of the research, an online format can be found at www.thai-explore.net.
Visitors can easily study each of the works, accompanied by images and video clips.
There are also conferences and seminars conducted by experts throughout the five days.
There is no admission fee. Call 02-539-3128 or visit www.researchexpo.nrct.go.th.
