DOST-PCIEERD partners with STRIDE for industry-researcher mixer
STRIDE co-hosted a forum with the Department of Science and Technology (DOST)’s Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development titled “Bringing Research to Market: An Industry-Researcher Mixer” during the National Science and Technology Week. This was held on July 18, 2018 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. The activity gathered around 50 university researchers and industry representatives to establish linkages and build networks for researchers to pitch their projects and develop technologies for prospective industry partners.
DOST Undersecretary for R&D Rowena Guevara graced the event and stressed the importance of collaboration to strengthen the research community’s entrepreneurial capacity. Considering the contributions of science and technology in economic development, she hoped that the forum “will further strengthen and sustain our partnership, so together we can help spread entrepreneurship in research, and infuse science in business.”
