The “Hevea Research Platform in Partnership” (HRPP) was initiated by the researchers of the Rubber Research Project under the Thai-French Research Framework
This platform aims at strengthening the excellence in the rubber commodity chain as well as academic networks and regional cooperation through the sharing of body of knowledge and technology transfer in this particular area. On May 26th, 2008, the “Memorandum of Understanding Creating the Hevea Research Platform in Partnership (HRPP) in Thailand” was officially signed by the four core partners (Kasetsart University (KU), Prince of Songkla University (PSU), Rubber Authority of Thailand (RAOT) and CIRAD. Owing to the needs for further development in this field of research to achieve acceleration of regional and international development, many universities and research institutions (5 from Thailand and 6 from France) became our Associated Members such as Mahidol University, Khon Khaen University, Ubon Rachathani University and BIOTEC for Thai side, Montpellier Sup Agro, INRA, IRD, University of Montpellier, University Blaise Pascal of Clermont-Ferrand, University du Maine of Le Mans for French side.
Several research projects are on-going between members of HRPP platform.
They have been classified under four themes:
- Agronomy, Physiology and Environnment
- Genomics, Biotechnologies and the performances of rubber planting material
- Technology and rubber quality
