Chulalongkorn University – The Halal Science Center

Chiang Mai University

Chiang Mai University (CMU) was founded in January 1964, under a Royal Charter granted by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. CMU is the first provincial university in Thailand, based on the government’s policy and the objectives of the northern people, as a centre for academic and occupational knowledge to benefit the region and the country as a whole. This university is a place for knowledge collection, studies, research, and knowledge transfer according to academic freedom based on morality and academic excellence, application and transfer, and arts and culture development.

One of CMU’s key areas of focus lies in the realm of smart agriculture. Recognizing the significance of agriculture in Thailand’s economy and global food security, the university has spearheaded initiatives to integrate cutting-edge technology and innovation into agricultural practices. Through research endeavours and collaborative projects with industry partners, CMU seeks to optimize agricultural production, enhance sustainability, and address the challenges posed by climate change and resource scarcity.

Digital innovation is another cornerstone of CMU’s academic agenda. Embracing the transformative power of technology, the university endeavours to harness digital solutions to tackle societal issues and drive economic growth. From pioneering research in artificial intelligence and data analytics to initiatives promoting digital literacy and entrepreneurship, CMU is at the forefront of the digital revolution, shaping the future of Thailand’s technology landscape.

In recent years, CMU has established itself as a trailblazer in the field of digital agriculture, leveraging emerging technologies such as IoT (Internet of Things), drones, and precision farming techniques to revolutionize the way crops are cultivated, monitored, and managed. By harnessing big data analytics and machine learning algorithms, researchers at CMU can optimize crop yields, minimize environmental impact, and empower farmers with actionable insights for informed decision-making.
