Discover Australian innovation at Thailand National Science and Technology Fair 2012
Australian inventions such as WiFi internet and the bionic ear have transformed modern life. Now visitors can learn more about the culture that produced them at the Thailand National Science and Technology Fair 2012.
The Australian Pavilion at the Fair, which runs between 17 and 31 August at BITEC Bangna, will highlight Australian education and innovation across a range of fields.
The pavilion will also profile outstanding Australian figures behind recent technological advances such as Google Maps, Cervical Cancer (HPV) vaccine and black box flight recorder; many are also Noble Prize winners. Eleven Australians have been awarded the Nobel Prizes, which is quite a number given its relatively small population.
Australia is currently building on its traditional strengths in agriculture, mining, medicine and astronomy by combining these with research in cross-over fields such as biotechnology, nanotechnology and informatics.
Visitors can discover more about these exciting new developments at the Australian Pavilion, as well as hear the success stories of outstanding Thai-Australian Alumni, and learn about the Australian Government’s scholarship program, the Endeavour Awards.
During the two-week Fair, which is Thailand’s biggest science event, two leading Australian academics will also conduct public seminars on water resource management and health science.
On 23 August, Dr Nancy Cromer from Flinders University will deliver a two-hour presentation, Managing Water Resources in Times of Flood and Drought: Some Public Health Considerations.
On 27 August, Prof Stephen G Pyne from University of Wollongong will present Improving Health and Well-being through Medicinal Chemistry Research: Fighting the Super Bugs.
The seminars are open to the public for free and Thai translation will be provided. Register to attend one or both seminar sessions at www.studyinaustralia.gov.au/thailand
