Thailand Inventors’ Day

The National Research Council of Thailand (NRCT) is a government organization holding status as a department under the command of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research, and Innovation. NRCT acts as a key unit to promote and support research, invention, innovation and technology transfer to related users in both the private and public sectors. One of main activities on promoting inventions and innovations, NRCT has cooperation with a related organization to hold Thailand Inventors’ Day since 1995 up to the present. The Cabinet resolved on 10 May 1994, to declare 2 February of every year as the Inventors’ Day in Thailand, to commemorate the achievement of His Majesty the King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the Father of Thai Invention, in inventing the “Low Speed Surface Aerator” or the so-called “Chaipattana Aerator”. On 14 August 2001, NRCT has been assigned to be the leading agency, coordinating with other government agencies and the private sector to organize Thailand Inventors’ Day. Since then the event has been held to open floor to all Thai and international inventors to exhibit and promote their inventions, new products or new techniques as well as to share experiences among themselves. Therefore, the fruitful commercialization and cooperation in research, invention and innovation will be operated effectively.
