Strengthening of science and technology capability of Thailand has been identified as one of the ways to increase the country’s economic growth and sustainability.

The program is administered by the S&T Postgraduate Education and Research Development Office (PERDO), the Commission on Higher Education (CHE), the Ministry of Education. Phase I of the Consortium of Postgraduate Education and Research Program in Chemistry (PERCH) was funded by the Royal Thai Government with a loan from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and government counterpart fund over the period of 1999-2006. The funding for Phase II of the program has been approved for the period of 2006-2010.
