Surface & Coatings Forum2017

Driving S-Curve Industries through Surface Technology and Innovations

June, Friday 23rd 2017, at 9.00 – 17.00

SILK 1-3, 2nd Floor, Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Center (BITEC)

Organized by :Metallurgy and Materials Science Research Institute (MMRI), Chulalongkorn University

Co-organized by :National Science Technology and Innovations Policy Office (STI), National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC), Thai Corrosion of Metals and Materials Association (TCMA) and Reed Tradex

          To promote the sustainable growths of the economy, many countries strategically focus on the developments of the high value-added innovation based industries.  In Thailand, for example, the so-called s-curve industries with fast growing potentials have been identified.  These include next-generation automotive, smart electronics, aviation, and medical hubs.  Interestingly, many of these industries are critically enabled and strengthened by surface technology and innovations. To name a few, surface technology is required for the developments and productions of electrode batteries, PCB interconnects, and aviation’s components. The developments of surface technology and innovations will thus underpin the growth of these important industries.

          In Surface & Coatings Forum 2017, we are honored to have both local and international experts to deliver the talks on the subjects related to the s-curve industries and the contributions of surface technology and innovations.  Furthermore, an array of the cutting-edge surface technology and innovation that illustrate the s-curve developments of the surface finishing industry itself will be discussed.
