Since its inception in 1982, the Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Technology under the Patronage of His Majesty the King, annually presented Outstanding Scientist Award and Young Scientist Award to recognize Thai researchers with outstanding scientific achievements, and to encourage active younger researchers to perform high quality research work of significant impact to society and economy. The selection for the awardees is based solely on nomination from respected scientists, science administrators in academia and research institutes, executives of private companies operating research and development departments, and previous awardees.

Recipients of the Outstanding Scientist Award will each receive a Certificate of Merit, an Honor Shield and a cash award of Baht 400,000 (USD 12,400). Recipient of the Young Scientist Award will each receive a cash award of Baht 100,000 (USD 3,000) and a certificate.

"It is the Foundation hope that the award presented today will stimulate Thai scientists to produce high quality research work, inspire the will to transfer their knowledge, and to act as good strong role models to the scientific community" said Dr. Kopr Kritayakirana, President of the Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Technology under the Patronage of His Majesty the King.

For 2010, the Foundation will present 2 Outstanding Scientist Award and 6 Young Scientist Award to the following individual:
