   International Cooperation and Support  
  The RGJ strategy provides a unique mechanism and opportunity for universities to enhance desirable and sustainable international collaboration. University faculty members in most major subjects may participate in the RGJ program as co-advisors or collaborators. It is quite feasible that the processes will eventually lead to meaningful exchanges of faculty and students, and the long-term goal of forging partnerships for research activities - the basic objectives of most academic co-operation Agreements and MOU's made between Thai and foreign universities. Hence it may be of significant mutual advantages for university administrators and International Office directors to give due attention to the RGJ program and to include it in their academic co-operation programs.

Furthermore, it is gratifying that a number of international organizations have recognized the merit of research cooperation with Thailand through the RGJ-Ph.D. Program. They have also given supporting assistance for RGJ-Ph.D. students to be able to carry out their research experience in the host countries 6-12 months longer. The international organizations signing memorandum of understanding with the RGJ-Ph.D. program are as follows;
