Industry,Innovation and Infrastructure

Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

Mahidol University aims to develop research and innovation by creating Research Value Chains with commercialized social and global impact. The University supports working spaces to increase cooperation with both public and private sectors, by providing co-working spaces, co-product design, and creative design areas. The Institute for Technology and Innovation Management (iNT) was established to support instructors, researchers, and students to conduct research and develop their findings into innovations with the national/international public/private sector. iNT also provides consultation services for patents, petty patents and other intellectual property rights, and funding, to instructors and researchers. In 2021, 575 patents, petty patents, and intellectual property rights, were granted. Startup programs and workshops are available for students and staff through the Workshop and Mahidol Incubation Program, along with continuous funding. Some examples of outstanding Mahidol University research: 1) RT-LAMP COVID-19 test kit developed by the Faculty of Science in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodhi Hospital and the Department of Medical Sciences; 2) Innovation Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) made from paper by the Faculty of Nursing in cooperation with SCG Packaging Public Company Limited (SCGP); 3) Fingerroot Extract against Covid-19 Drug by the Faculty of Science, in partnership with the Faculty of Medicine Ramathibodi Hospital and the Thailand Center of Excellence for Life Science (TCELS); 4) Robot Wastie for collecting infectious waste from patients and Robot Foodie for delivering food and medicines, developed by the Faculty of Engineering and the Golden Jubilee Medical Center under the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital. Mahidol University has also applied technology to improve health services. For example, the Siriraj Mobile Stroke Unit has operated 24 hours to provide treatment to emergency patients. Since 2018, the lives of 598 cerebrovascular-disease (stroke) patients have been saved. The Siriraj Mobile Stroke unit can reduce disability and death among a significant number of the population. It has been expanded in Bangkok and surrounding areas, and Chiang Rai, Chonburi, Ratchaburi, Nakhon Phanom, and Surat Thani provinces. The Faculty of Physical Therapy has commenced a specialized physical therapy clinic to provide Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment for the physical rehabilitation of stroke survivors.

    The “STEM & ROBOTICS CAMP” Workshop
    The project "STEM & ROBOTICS CAMP" is an extracurricular program aimed at developing coding skills for both teachers and students. The activities are conducted in three dimensions, including practical coding training for students and teachers, researching and developing teaching processes for coding, and researching and developing coding teaching materials. The working principles of the team are based on the concept that teaching media used in the activities should be affordable, accessible, and the learning process should be easy to understand, engaging, widely available, and sustainable.

    Mobile Stroke Unit Tele Consultation and Patient Transfer ; A One-Stop Service for All
    MSU-SOS is a model project that aims to improve the efficiency of teleconsultation and Ischemic stroke treatment using a Mobile Stroke Unit. The onboard CT Scanner, which is teleconsultation compatible, scans an image of the patient’’s brain and communicates with a medical team via 4G/5G technology, a high-speed wireless network, to make an immediate decision to deliver a thrombolytic agent. It also enables the medical team to inject contrast media to monitor cerebrovascular functions, resulting in a faster and more accurate diagnosis and a shorter referral procedure. As a result, the rate of disability, mortality, and loss to the patient and family is lowered, and the expense of the fund for long-term disabled patient care is reduced.

    The Module Development Project for Persons with Disabilities to Promote Their Rights of Accessibility and Utilization of Information on Broadcasting Services and Telecommunications
    The accessibility of broadcasting services for persons with disabilities is a neglected issue. To date, broadcasting operators and TV program producers have not adequately considered the needs of persons with disabilities, or have placed them low on their priority list. This is likely due to the fact that Thailand’’s broadcasting services primarily focus on generating revenue through commercials. Operators tend to target the general audience and produce programs that appeal to them. As the commercial success is determined by the size of the audience, persons with disabilities, who constitute a small percentage, are often overlooked or their rights are violated.
