Big future for nanotechnology: Agency plans to make Thailand regional centre for molecular-level technology

Abstract:
The National Nanotechnology Centre (Nanotec) has revealed plans to make Thailand the focus of the emerging nanotechnology industry in the Asean region.

The centre's executive director, Sirirurg Songsivilai, said Nanotec had formed a strategy to nurture and support Thailand's emerging nanotechnology industries with the aim of making the country the regional centre. Nanotechnology is technology on an atomic or molecular scale.

The agency is creating a network cluster involving the education and private sectors and researchers, which will focus on developing nanotechnology in three core areas: nanomaterials, nanobiotechnology and nanoelectronics. This will be aimed at supporting local industries, including textiles, food, energy and electronics, as well as emerging industries related to nanotechnology.

"We plan to be a centre of excellence for nanotechnology-related industries in the Asean region in the near future," Sirirurg said. "Meanwhile, we will use nanotechnology to create a knowledge-based society and improve the quality of life for Thai people."
