The Office of SME Promotion (OSMEP) of Thailand has been promoting innovation for MSMEs through awareness creation, information and guideline support for MSMEs to adopt innovation in various sectors. One successful example is the Innovation Coupon program, which was aimed to support SMEs for adopting innovation or create innovation by subsidized the expense/cost by reimbursement process. The concept of innovation coupon is to pursue and encourage MSMEs to seek technology service providers or researchers to work on innovation toward their needs. MSMEs also can team up with their technology service providers or researcher partner to apply for the coupon or they can visit OSMEP in order to seek and match with proper technology service providers or researchers. The MSMEs that would like apply for the innovation coupon must pass the selection process conducted by the committee.
