Welcome to TU SISU
The Social Innovation Support Unit (SISU) at Thammasat University constitutes of 2 spaces: Co-working space and Makerspace.
The rationale behind splitting the two spaces is that one caters to service and application (knowledge-based) innovation projects; while, the other space is a workshop where products are prototyped and made.
The TU SISU is at its ‘growth’ stage, the project leaders are currently gathering feedback from stakeholders in order to expand the services that we provide.
Our vision: We consider ourselves incubators, an impact hub where innovators and change makers can grow their social impact projects and enterprises from concept to implementation to impact.
Our mission: We strive to institute social innovation as the impact driver for sustainable change in education and community-based challenges. We aim to educate and empower the next generation of innovators (our students and stakeholders) with the knowledge and skills required in today’s globalised world. We will create connections and foster impact projects between innovators in Thailand and SE Asia.
Through the services that we provide, we want to communicate not only to our stakeholders; but, to communities that social innovation is the key to sustainable change and growth.
We at Thammasat University believe,
“As people think and work together, a fabric of shared meaning comes into being.”
― Harrison Owen, The Power of Spirit: How Organizations Transform
