The Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) represented Filipino technologies and inventions in the 2017 Taipei International Invention Show and Technomart (INST) on 28-30 September 2017 in Taipei World Trade Center, Taiwan.
Participants draft DOST-TAPI SWOT analysis during the ISO 9001:2015 Training on 11-12 September 2017 at the DOST-TAPI AVR
As part of the Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology’s (DOST-TAPI) preparation for the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2008 to ISO 9001:2015 migration, a training on the new standard’s Quality Management System Requirements was held on 11-12 September 2017 at the DOST-TAPI Audio-visual Room (AVR).
We are honored to launch our new program of assistance for Filipino inventors, which will be done today, September 28, 2017, at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC). We call this the “Innovation and Technology Lending Program”, or simply “I-TECH”.
Three (3) innovative projects were approved by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) under the Technology Innovation for Commercialization (TECHNICOM) Program, one of the premier programs being implemented by the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI), during the first semester of 2017.
TECHNICOM provides support to commercially-viable projects through financial and technical assistance by fast-tracking the transfer and commercialization of research-based, locally-developed technologies.
Moreover, the Program provides funding assistance for prototype development, pilot-scale testing, technology validation, field testing, and feasibility study preparation and consultancy service for Intellectual Property (IP) for DOST-funded technologies.
The approved projects included the R-TAP (an advanced pressure management system for water utilities), cacao by-products processing enterprise, and mosquito-repellent textile products.
