STEAM – A Driver of a Circular Economy

9 May, 2019
6:30 pm
- 8:00 pm

The world needs to shift away from the traditional linear economy towards a circular economy; one where food, energy and materials are produced and consumed more sustainably and all by-products and waste recycled or re-used.  The convergence of expertise and knowledge in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM), coupled with life-cycle thinking, presents humanity with a unique opportunity to advance society while combating the degradation of our planet.

Dr Lerwen Liu, the Founding Director of STEAM Platform at King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT, Thailand) together with Mr Arslan Siddique and Ms Panitsara Nakseemok from the STEAM Platform will demonstrate the unique “first principle” approach in educating Industry4.0 and Circular Economy through examples of research and innovation carried out by young scientists in KMUTT.
