  30. 30. Voices of our Customers... “…the establishment of Green Nanomaterials Research Center at TSP reflects our research and development mission and offers chances to SCG Cement’s researchers to work in high-quality environment surrounded by the country’s leading researchers. This environment allows our researchers to catch up with the latest and advance technologies rapidly and work closely with research institutions that we have cooperation including SIIT, AIT, NSTDA’s research centers such as NANOTEC and MTEC.” -- Pramote Techasupatkul, President, SCG Cement Co., Ltd. “…establishing Betagro Science Center in Thailand Science Park (TSP) is another big step of Betagro Group investing in R&D. We chose TSP because of a potential on R&D collaboration with the four National Research Centers who have a large pool of human resources and state-ofthe-art equipments. We strongly believe that the “science” atmosphere and “learning” environment in TSP will motivate our R&D staff to be able to deliver innovative outcomes within a timely manner.” -- Vanus Taepaisitphongse, Chief Executive Officer, Betagro Group www.nstda.or.th © NSTDA 2013 Roles of NSTDA in Promoting Innovation in Thai Industry Hugh Thaweesak Koanantakool 30
