Research Center for Quality of Life and Indicator Development, Research Center, NIDA, was established in 2012. Professor Dr. Sombat Thamrongthanyawong, then NIDA’s Rector, envisaged NIDA as a research university. One important vision of NIDA is an institute with excellence in three main areas namely 1) research 2) educational management and 3) academic services. Research Center, as an agency responsible for research, enhanced his concept by setting up the research structure with 12 research centers under Research Center.
