The “Hevea Research Platform in Partnership” (HRPP) was initiated by the researchers of the Rubber Research Project under the Thai-French Research Framework sponsored by Commission on Higher Education and the Government of the French Republic through the French Embassy to Thailand, and Thailand International Cooperation Agency. 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), Department of Agriculture of Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperative (DOA) 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, Mae Jo University and BIOTEC for Thai side, Montpellier Sup Agro, INRA, IRD, University of Montpellier II, University Blaise Pascal of Clermont-Ferrand, University du Maine of Le Mans for French side.
