The Department of Science and Technology will hold the Second National R&D Conference on Feb. 15 to harmonize the country’s research and development agenda and priorities for 2017-2022.

In this conference, DOST will present to stakeholders the final Harmonized National R&D Agenda 2017-2022. The final agenda, to be presented by Dr. Rowena Cristina L. Guevara, undersecretary for research and development, is based on the outputs of the National R&D Conference held Oct. 21, 2016.

DOST’s Councils – the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development; Philippine Council for Health Research and Development; Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development; and the National Research Council of the Philippines – as well as the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration and Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology will also discuss the call for R&D proposals for the following sectors: health; industry, energy, and emerging technologies; agriculture, aquatic, and natural resources; basic research; and disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.

During the first National R&D Conference, Sec. Fortunato T. De La Peña identified 11 areas/strategies included in the R&D agenda.

The National R&D Conferences is consistent with the DOST mandate of providing central direction, leadership, and coordination of scientific and technical activities in the country.

Through the national research agenda, the DOST will unify all R&D projects and initiatives in the country, and ensure that results of these R&D activities will be used to improve the socio-economic conditions of Filipinos.

Republic Act 10055 or the Technology Transfer Act  of 2009 provides that DOST shall regularly conduct national R&D conferences to gather all agencies of the government with R&D activities.

The law in general aims to promote and facilitate the transfer, dissemination, and effective use, management, and commercialization of intellectual property, technology and knowledge resulting from R&D funded by the government for the benefit of national economy and taxpayers.  Thus, it shall establish the means to ensure greater public access to these technologies and knowledge.
