Commemorates the birthday of Princess Sirindhorn.
In 1985 the Royal Thai Government designated 2 April as “Thai Heritage Conservation Day” to honour HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and to honour the Royal Family’s contribution to the conservation of national heritage for future generations.
On the occasion of Thai Heritage Conservation Day, National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) under National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation (MHESI), announced its collaboration with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in supporting the safeguarding of Thai architectural knowledge.
Through the NAVANURAK society and culture platform, NECTEC is setting up a knowledge management tool for conservators and heritage homebuilders, integrating technology and innovation to actualize the Bio-Circular-Green Model (BCG) toward creative economy development.
