“Two heads are better than one” says the proverb. Collaboration between parties, particularly from those in different research fields,has never been so important than today.
In the 21st century, a significant amount of work is required to support research progress. The continuous creation of new technologies and new innovations makes it necessary for researchers to stay up-to-speed and work fast. Similar trend exists in the industry. As the market constantly evolves and the competition in the maket becomes fiercer,a firms must rely on innovations to get ahead of the competitors or even to stay relevant in the market.
Collaborations on innovations that are multidisciplinary between academia and industry can lead to the gathering of specific knowledge to work around specific challengesfor better solutions.
Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University(Chula Engineering) has developed this directory to facilitate the collaboration creation process. Specifically, researchers from other institutes can use this directory to identify potential researchers at the Chula Engineering who have specific industrial knowledge in the field that they are looking for in order to initiate contact and ultimately form the collaboration team.
The research at Chula Engineering is organized into 8 clusters, namely, (I) Energy, (II) Green Engineering, (III) Disaster and Safety, (IV) Infrastructure and Transportation, (V) Automation and Testing, (VI) Smart Materials, (VII) Health, and (VIII) Information Technology.
This directory is available also in digital format, downloadable via the faculty’s website (www.eng.chula. ac.th), which allows detailed search and filters using specific clusters, keywords, researcher names, or departments.
