SDG Move: SDG Research and Support Programme

SDG Move or SDG Research and Support Programme is a research programme under Faculty of Economics, Thammasat University. It is one of the first research programme in the country established specifically for SDGs. It is also regarded as one of a few SDG knowledge hubs in the country.

SDG Move was established in 2016 as a cooperation between the Faculty and Thailand Research Fund (TRF). It functioned as a strategic research issue unit (SRI Unit) that follow academic and practical movement of SDG implementation and set a direction for SDG-related research funding each year. So far it has funded a series of research for baseline for each SDG in the context of Thailand, and another series about localisation of SDGs.

After the establishment of the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation (MHESRI), TRF was dissolved and reformulated to be the office of Thailand Science Research and Innovation Committee (TSRI), and no longer able to fund the SRI units. SDG Move then moved back to the Faculty in late 2019.
