NSTDA says patents a key to innovation
The National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) expects to register 70 patents this year, up from 50 last year, to spur science and technology development for business and industry. The agency also aims to increase the number of patents by 50% to 110 in 2008, according to NSTDA president Sakarindr Bhumiratana.
Mr Sakarindr said that Thailand needed advanced technology development to remain competitive and to gain access to international patents.
The NSTDA and its partners produce a variety of medical and energy technologies. They include a new testing technology for the avian flu virus; a high-efficiency, low-cost solar energy generator; a material that can be used to build fuel cells for pollution-free motors; and a special nanotechnology substance for facial treatments.
