Bridging Innovation: National Metal and Materials Technology Center, Thailand Visits WISE Center at National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan for Cutting-Edge Collaboration

Date: 2024-06-03

National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) recently welcomed a distinguished delegation from the National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC), Thailand for a four-day visit. This significant event, held from May 8 to May 11, 2024, highlights the Taiwan-Thailand Innovation Center for Clean Water and Sustainable Energy (WISE Center) collaborative efforts under the New Southbound Science and Technology Cooperation initiative by the National Science and Technology Council, Taiwan.

Led by Dr. Toemsak Srikhirin, Executive Director of MTEC, the delegation included Dr. Chanchana Thanachayanont, Director of the Environment Research Group, and Ms. Hataikarn Srisook, Director of International Relations Officer. The main purpose of this visit lies in the insightful discussions and site visits designed to showcase the innovative research and technological advancements at NTHU. The MTEC delegation engaged with the Principal Investigator at the WISE Center, Chen Sinn-wen, Chair professor of the Department of Chemical Engineering, to discuss the latest collaboration results of the Taiwan-Thailand WISE Center. In addition, the delegation of MTEC also discussed with senior Vice President Nyan-Hwa Tian and Professor Pei-Chi Lin, the Co-PIs of WISE Center to solidify the collaboration relationship as well as to set the next stage for future cooperation.

The MTEC delegations also visited the Taiwan Instrument Research Institute (TIRI) of the National Applied Research Laboratories (NARLabs) and Center for Measurement Standards (CMS) of Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) under the arrangement of the WISE Center. Under the chair of Deputy Director General Jiann-Hsiun Kao, the discussion between TIRI and MTEC focused on developing electrochemical sensing of heavy metal ions in Mekong River. The TIRI also arranged the laboratory tour after the discussion. Moreover, the visit of MTEC to CMS at ITRI mainly focused on the academic collaboration of environmental analytical techniques between two sides. 

This visit underscores the strong collaborative relationship between MTEC and NTHU under the support of the Taiwan-Thailand WISE Center, aimed at advancing research and innovation in clean water and sustainable energy. The exchange of knowledge and expertise is expected to yield significant benefits for both institutions, fostering joint research initiatives and technological advancements. Moreover, both sides agreed to hold the 2nd Thailand-Taiwan Symposium on Innovation and Sustainability in Bangkok in August, 2024.
