Six hundred research works and innovative inventions will be presented during the “Thailand Research Expo 2016”, which will kick off this Wednesday and run until Sunday from 8am-6pm on the 22nd and 23rd floor of Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre at CentralWorld, Ratchadamri Road.

Held under the “Research for Country Development Toward Stability, Prosperity and Sustainability” concept by the National Research of Thailand and the research networks nationwide, the 11th edition of the expo will see nearly 500 research works developed by academic researchers from 115 organisations and 108 works created by research students.

Half of the quality works on display are new creations that are beneficial in communities and organisations and can be further developed commercially.

Among the outstanding inventions to be unveiled are Tubtim Choompae (Gor Khor 69), a new breed of red rice that can grow in any weather condition and has resistance to rice blast disease; colour extracts for batik fabric production made from natural raw materials such as butterfly pea, betel palm and peacock flower; and a new kind of socks with microcapsule scent that can both prevent bacteria fungus and reduce foot odour.

Other interesting research works are hamburger, sandwich and Northern Thai spicy sausage made from white crickets; tableware made from empty palm fruit bunches; innovative reed mats that can be used as home decorations; brandy, wine and vinegar made from myrtales (or makiang in Thai, a preserved plant under the Plant Genetic Conservation Project); and many recipes of ready-to-cook dried Thai curry paste.

There is no admission fee. Visit www.researchexpo.nrct.go.th or call 02-561-2445 ext 517—9.
