From March to June 2020, SDG Move undertook policy-focused research for Thailand Science Research and Innovation (TSRI), an organization under the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation. It was the analysis of data and the design of future scenarios to support the science research and innovation plan. TSRI wants this development plan to be the catalyst of change that would steer Thailand to progress more sustainably and inclusively along the line of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In the period between 2018-2019, SDG Move focused the areas of research grant on the theme of Localizing SDGs as well as base-line research on SDG 3, 6, 10, 11 and 17. It also analyzed the Thailand Science Research and Innovation (TSRI) strategic plan for budget year 200 against the SDGs.
