KMUTNB Hosts Delegation from the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs of France

On 29 May 2024, Prof. Dr. Somrerk Chandra-ambhorn, Vice President for Research and Information Technology Development, and Asst. Prof. Dr. Pornsak Srisungsitthisunti, Director of the Thai-French Innovation Institute (TFII), along with the team of KMUTNB executives, warmly welcomed a delegation from the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs. The French delegation was led by M. Matthieu PEYRAUD, Director for Culture, Education, Research & Networking Coordination, and Dr. Xavier Grosmaitre, Attaché for Scientific and Higher Education Cooperation, Embassy of France in Bangkok.

During their visit, the delegation visited the Renewable Energy Research Center (RERC) and the TFII-Schneider Electric Center of Excellence. The KMUTNB’s Vice President and Director of TFII presented an overview of the more than three-decade-long close and fruitful cooperation between KMUTNB and France. This collaboration began with the establishment of the Thai-French Innovation Center (TFIC) in 1990 through the joint efforts of the French and Thai governments. Since then, the academic partnership between KMUTNB and France has grown significantly, such as the cooperation with Université de Lorraine to launch the dual Ph.D. program and to establish the "Electrical Engineering – Thai French Research Center (EE-TFRC)," an international research laboratory.
