A case is made in this report for the the creation of university-based Science, Technology and Innovation Policy Research Institute (s) (STIPRIs) in Thailand and for the National STI Policy Office to take a lead role in the establishment of a STIPRI Board, an institutional mechanism based on the triple helix system, to oversee STIPRI activities with the view to promoting STI policy research and strengthening the STI policy formulation process. Rather than the STI Policy Office centralise STI policy research within its jurisdiction, it was considered prudent to devolve such activities to research-active universities. This consideration is based on the outcomes of a consultative process involving discussions with participants from academia, industry, government and non-government organisations. The consultative process sought to explore the rationale and feasibility of setting up STIPRI(s) as the research arm of the STI Policy Office; and to evaluate the pros and cons of alternative scenarios involving the centralised and decentralised approaches for delivering STIPRI(s).
