Thailand lags in research, innovation

Post by J.J.B. » Sun Aug 28, 2016 10:47 pm

ASEAN Report shows Thailand is falling behind other member states:

The report presents data from the Web of Science and Derwent World Patents Index to specify how, individually and collectively, the ASEAN group is cultivating basic research as well as steering that research to practical application in the form of patents. The findings demonstrate that performance does not always conform to size – as observed, for example, in the two ASEAN members whose scientific output in recent years has seen the sharpest increase. In patenting, some members show specialization in medical and biomedical applications, as opposed to digital or semiconductor technology. And one nation, somewhat unexpectedly, proves to be a world leader in the field of mycology.

Whatever their individual concentrations, the ASEAN nations and Hong Kong demonstrate themselves to be advancing in the pursuit of science and technology.

Innovation requires the kind of freedom of thought that is unwanted by the established order in Thailand, scientific endeavour might enrich the nation but the people at the top have it all already and they have no interest in narrowing the gap with the rest of the population.
