The exhibition “Talent Mobility: Matching Lab with Design Business” presents 50 prototypes of Thai researchers which are ready to use and evolve to expand business opportunity.

‘Talent Mobility’ Project is a collaboration between TCDC and National Science Technology and Innovation Policy Office (STI) to encourage science, technology and innovation personnel from university and public research institute to work with private sector. The goal is to increase talent mobility in private sector and create a knowledge exchange mechanics between personnel, entrepreneur, designer and educational institute. This will lead to cooperation in analyzing the problem and reinforce the importance of design since prototype development process.

TCDC hosts the activities to disseminate creative research that has a potential in solving problem and promoting creative and design industry. This results in an exhibition of 50 ready-for-development and cost-saving prototypes. These prototypes are divided into 5 categories; packaging, material, textile, tool/equipment and technology/digital. From thinking and researching process, experimentation, production process of a creative research, the products are displayed in the form of an exhibition. The opportunity to develop and evolve from the prototype will also be given to the researchers to present their works to entrepreneurs, designers and the public in the broader scope.
