Two state agencies appeal against hefty cut in R&D funding

An written appeal was submitted yesterday to the House budget scrutiny committee, by the National Science Technology and Innovation Policy Office (NSTIPC) and the Thailand Centre of Excellence for Life Service  (TCELS), objecting to a large cut in their research and development funding.

 

The appeal came one day after a sub-committee of the House budget scrutiny committee slashed the fund, officially known as the Science, Research and Innovation Promotion Fund, by about 63.7% or from 12 billion to only 4.534 billion baht.

 

NSTIPC director, Professor Dr. Sutthipant Chitpimonmat, and TCELS director Dr. Naret Damrongchai, personally handed the letter to Mr. Santi Keeranant, secretary to the House budget scrutiny committee.

This ‘government’ has no interest in science.  Knowing and research in the sciences might make Thais smarter and we cannot have that.

As Thais never discovered anything, a R&D budget seems a little pointless.

Cutting down on the wasted money is probably the best idea they've ever had.

Message from Prayuts mob.... Stop your whinging, we need the money for weapons, mainly to protect ourselves when the peasants start to revolt.

If only they would revolt. Too much apathy I'm afraid.

Yeah, going from the sub-marine to the sub-lime.

You give up on science, you give up on your future. It is that simple.

People with low IQ and poor education can't do science.

Science is best done in first world countries.

 

Thailand should stick to fishing and farming.
