The Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Technology under the Patronage of His Majesty the King was established in 1982 as a non-governmental organization with the aim of promoting the advancement of science and technology in Thailand. The Foundation has established the Outstanding Technologist Award to recognize Thai researchers with outstanding scientific achievements each year, who can role models for future generations of scientists. It also awards a limited number of Young Scientist Awards annually to encourage young scientists to perform research work of quality. Both awards are among the most prestigious awards of their kind within the Thai scientific community.

"The 2010 Outstanding Technologist Award gives recognition to technologist whose research projects gives importance to new and outstanding project, social impact, involves significant science & technology activities, and enhance Thailand's industrial competitiveness" said Dr. Kopr Kritayakirana, Chairman of the Foundation for the Promotion of Science and Technology under the Patronage of His Majesty the King.
