Bangkok (VNA/NNT) – Thailand’s National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) has organised the first-ever Thailand Tech Show, aiming to push readily applicable technologies to the market.

The event, themed "from shelf-top to store-front," looked to drive academic research into commercial usage.

NSTDA Deputy Director Narong Sirilertworakul revealed that over 150 works were on display at the show, which allowed 15 minutes for each of the works' creators to present their accomplishments.

The event served as a forum for business negotiations, allowing innovations to hit the market sooner, he said, adding that participants that can secure a deal are required to pay a 30,000 THB facilitation fee, along with 2 percent of their sales total.
The event also featured a Product Shopping zone displaying technological innovations from 19 partner agencies, including extracts from sticky rice that can be used in anti-aging products.-VNA
