Collaboration with the National Innovation Agency of Thailand, - A formal Collaborative Research Agreement has been in place since 2020. This centres on cooperation in the fields of smart specialisation and innovation, centred on exchanges of knowledge and experience related to concepts and practical application to place based innovation and smart specialisation, particularly in the context of Sustainable development.

The JRC S3 platform collaborates with the National Innovation Agency of Thailand (NIA), a public organisation under the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation of Thailand, whose mission is to support and develop Thailand’s innovation system, to promote economic restructuring and competitive enhancement.
