NSTDA participates in the National Science and Technology Fair 2018, hosted by the Ministry of Science and Technology. With the grand opening taking place on 16 August 2018, the fair is packed with displays of innovations as well as fun activities, aiming to inspire kids to have interest in science and understand the practical application of science.



Here are some highlights from NSTDA at the fair:

Power ball corner. MTEC-NSTDA has developed a prototype of high-energy food for military activities. This food was designed to be light weight in order to reduce the transport burden of ready-to-eat meals. The high-energy “power bar” contains carbohydrate (rice crispy), protein (soy bean, Chinese sausage), fat (vegetable oil, sesame seed) and binding agent (starch, sugar). In this power ball corner, kids will be able to make their own high-energy and tasty snacks.


MuseumPool.  MuseumPool is an application to improve the experience of museum visitors in Thailand. The mobile application contains information of museums (location, how to get there and highlights in the museum).  Once visitors arrive at the museum, more information such as floor plan and display items can be obtained via QR code.



National Biobank. National Biobank is a new infrastructure initiated by NSTDA for preserving biological resources which include plants, seeds and microbe for use in research. National Biobank is linked to Digital Biobank which comprises digital cell bank, digital seed bank, digital gene bank, human genome. In this corner, kids will participate in a fun activity to identify organisms from the nature and learn of their utilizations and benefits.



Railway activity. Kids will get to assemble wooden trains and learn about railway transportation.

Fabrication Lab. Equipment and prototypes constructed in the Fabrication Lab are on display.  



KidBright Workshop. KidBright is a digital board and a software programming tool developed by NECTEC-NSTDA to support Thai children to learn about computer programming and acquire the skills. With KidBright, kids can design simple computer programs on their smartphone application to perform tasks, such as turning on lights or operate home appliances. The workshop at this fair is open for children to practice coding with KidBright.



There are over 100 agencies from Thailand and ten other countries participating in this fair. The National Science and Technology Fair 2018 opens to visitors daily from 16-26 August 2018 at IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center in Bangkok.

On May 25 2018 we are organising a full day workshop in Bangkok on how to prepare a successful proposal for the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) European research grants including the Individual Fellowships and the Research and Innovation Staff Exchange Programme (RISE) at Maegraith Conference Room, Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University.

This one-day workshop will focus on providing researchers in Thailand with the skills needed to successfully communicate the content and potential impact of their research to the evaluators of European funding programs with a particular focus on the MSCA-IF and the MSCA-RISE.

Hands-on training led by the European trainer will focus on:

  • Partner Identification
  • Proposal structure
  • Partner Identification
  • Evaluation
  • Financial aspects
  • Review of sample proposals 

The workshop will be led by Ms Katia Insogna, EU Senior Research & Innovation Consultant and Trainer with UK-based Innovative Technology and Science Ltd. Katia is a highly competent consultant and trainer with more than 15 years expertise in EU Research & Innovation funding programmes.

Participation in the workshop will be free of charge. Lunch is included in the programme. Participants must cover their own travel and/or accommodation costs. The workshop announcement is attached.

Interested candidates are invited to submit a short C.V. (no longer than 1 page) and ½ page statement detailing your interest and current plans for a research project with partners in Europe and submit to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by the 15 May.

I hope you can join us and please share this information with any colleagues you think may be interested.

THE NATIONAL Electronics and Computer Technology Center(NECTEC) plans to focus on seven areas as it tries to create the prototype model for agricultural-data integration and zoning optimisation.

Sarun Sumriddetchkajorn, who was appointed executive director of NECTEC in March, said the state agency planned to utilise research and development for the benefit of government, communities and the private sector. The seven categories on which this R&D will focus are food and agriculture, manufacturing, service industry, energy and environment, community and the disabled, healthcare and medical services, and security.

The zoning optimisation project follows the government’s plan to offer farmers incentives for planning crops best suited to their land. With proper zoning, farmers should be able to utilise their land efficiently, cultivating crops that meet market demand.

“I think that in the first year [of the project], NECTEC will able to develop a prototype model for agricultural-data integration and zoning to help farmers plant crops suitable to their location, such as rice, corn, soybean, sugar cane and pineapple. As a result, the government will be able to register all farmers in the nation for the purpose of agricultural-data integration, and it will able to improve their land-use plans to improve farmers’ quality of life in the next step,” Sarun said.

He added that the agency would conduct R&D to support the country’s development in three areas: hardware, software, and information-technology infrastructure.

In the first area, NECTEC will provide R&D to support smart- factory automation, virtual product design, plastic electronics, and green IT. The second area will focus on software as a service (SaaS), mobile applications, semantic technology, search engines, and the Internet of Things.

Last, the IT infrastructure will support cloud computing and security.
