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.
In Thailand Inventors’ Day, an international pavilion is set up for exhibiting the potential and interesting invention and innovation of international inventors/innovators. This exhibition is known as Bangkok International Intellectual Property, Invention, Innovation and Technology Exposition (IPITEx) which will be held in Thailand Inventors’ Day during 2 – 6 February of every year, to create the collaboration between Thai and international inventors/organizations.
This year, we concern about international travel restrictions due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, the IPITEx competition will be held online, but an international pavilion is still set up to promote your potential invention and innovation at the event. Visitors and domestic participants can explore yours through our online platform. Also, your inventions and innovations will be publicized on our website worldwide.
