History of ERIC

In response to an increasing necessity for environmental research in planning national development as well as providing expanded graduate level courses, the Environmental Research Institute, Chulalongkorn University (ERIC) was established on 5 October 1974. Since then, it has grown to become a significant academic institute committed to understanding the relationship between mankind and the environment. A main role of ERIC is to conduct environmental research to provide information for planning on problem mitigation and prevention as well as conservation and development for a better environment and quality of life for Thai society. Over the years, ERIC has been able to identify diverse and sometimes dangerous environmental problems and provide recommended sustainable solutions to protect public health and resources.
