Research and Development and Technology Transfer Services

        Bureau of Community Technology (BCT) conducts studies and researches focusing on ceramic, food and herbal technology, pulp and paper, material science and engineering etc. The main purpose of our activities is to develop the production processes and/or novel methodology, to improve the quality of raw material and finished product that is environmentally friendly and serve the customers' needs. At the end of each research project care will be taken to transfer what we have achieved to the general public. Research and Development in Science and Technology are considered to be one of the driving forces to sustainably push country's social and economy development. Therefore, BCT's intention is to help building up the capability, adding up product's value, and improving productivity of Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), especially, in the Agro-industry business sector through research and development. Our objective also include technology transfer to the rural community such that the technology can help adding up value for the local products, create jobs, create incomes, and improving quality of life.
