As a member of NSTDA, BIOTEC shares its vision to be a key partner in developing Thailand into a knowledge-based society through science and technology. In addition to funding and conducting research, strong emphasis is placed on promoting industrial applications of biotechnology by both local and global companies. The following activities are examples of ways which the Center collaborates with various organizations:
BIOTEC works closely with Technology Licensing Office of Technology Management Center to facilitate commercialization of its research discoveries. Patents, petty patents, copyrights, or know-how are licensed to public or private agencies for commercial uses as well as economic and societal improvement projects.
Joint and Contract Research and Development
BIOTEC is interested in both short-term and long-term issues facing the industry. Partnerships with other organizations are strongly encouraged in order to pursue studies of common interests. Aside from sharing knowledge and benefits with partners, BIOTEC shares the risk by jointly providing financial support to its join research programs.
BIOTEC facilitates development of new biotechnology enterprises in various forms, such as establishment of pilot-scale development units for novel technologies, spinning-off of biotechnology companies from BIOTEC research, and support for bioentrepreneurs.
