HCMR Thai - Japanese study project collaboration was inaugurated in 2003 by H.I.H. Prince Akishino and taken under the Royal Patronage of H.R.H. Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. The study aims to investigate human's interaction with domestic and wild chicken in three main aspects: (1) Biology and Ecology; (2) Humanities; and (3) Economics. In addition, the study covers human perception, practices and historical consequences. This is the third annual meeting since the project establishment. The first two meetings were held in Japan in 2003 and 2004.
