3) Deputy Director of the Office of Procurement, Inventory and Assets (OPIA)


Email from AIT President from 13 January 2023


Dear AIT Family,


Following the call for applications for the position of Deputy Director of the Office of Procurement, Inventory and Assets,  I am pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Janjira Manprasert as the new Deputy Director of the Office of Procurement, Inventory and Assets (OPIA).

Ms. Janjira, or Khun Tik, is not new to AIT, as she has been with us since 2014 serving as Accountant in the Finance Office. Her work at the Finance Office is related to procurement and ERP systems, and her familiarity with AIT and her prior role has prepared her well for this new assignment.


She assumed the post on 1 January 2023 and will be reporting directly to the Vice President for Administration. I am confident that under her OPIA leadership, Ms. Janjira will continue to provide the best customer service to our community.  Please join me in welcoming and supporting Ms. Janjira in her new role.




B. Workshops/ Conferences  

NERPS Conference 2023

Following the success of the first Hiroshima International Conference on Peace and Sustainability (HICPS 2022), the Network for Education and Research on Peace and Sustainability (NERPS) at Hiroshima University and the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) will jointly host the NERPS Conference 2023 February 28 to March 3, 2023 at the AIT campus in Thailand.

The NERPS Conference 2023 is a platform to facilitate continued inter- and trans-disciplinary research and policy conversations among students, researchers, and practitioners working on issues related to peace, sustainability, or their nexus. The conceptual and empirical linkages between peace and sustainability are widely recognized in academic and policy circles. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development confirms this recognition. However, much of the initiatives on peace and sustainability operate in silos, undermining the positive and mutually-reinforcing relationship between them. An enhanced integration of peace and sustainability component is imperative for addressing complex challenges that come with global transformations that are manifested environmentally, socially, politically, and economically across levels. It is, therefore, crucial to identify the pathways that enhance the peace-promoting potential of sustainability and the sustainability-promoting potential of peace. The theme of this conference, “Bridging Peace and Sustainability amidst Global Transformations,” will focus on various pathways that bridge peace promotion and sustainable development. At the time of submission, authors will be required to choose one of the three main topics (i.e., peace, sustainability, or their nexus) and one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) most relevant to their abstracts.

The deadline for abstract and optional full paper submissions is November 30, 2022. Visit the conference page for more information: https://nerps.org/thailand_nerps2023/
