From Contest to Commerce


Since 2008, Thailand has supported more than 100 teams to join the Global Student Innovation Challenge (gSIC), held as part of the International Convention on Rehabilitation Engineering and Assistive Technology (i-CREATe), averaging 10 teams per year. Some student teams have proceeded to a stage of real-world utilization through commercialization.

“From Contest to Commerce” session aims to share with audience some successful designs and products from previous gSIC competitions. The audience will learn their paths to success, as well as several challenges they have been facing. From prototypes to products, from students to company owners, they and their products have impacted a great number of users. This is good evidence that i-CREATe has put together a fruitful platform to deliver favorable outcomes to society.
