Congratulations to the Finalists of the 2014 National Invention Contest!
After an extensive regional search for outstanding researches and inventions in the Regional Invention Contests and Exhibits (RICE) held last year, the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) in cooperation with the DOST Regional Offices is pleased to announce that there are 55 finalists for the six categories of the 2014 National Invention Contests and Exhibits. Each of the 55 finalists has shown leadership in the development and promotion of Filipino’s creativity, inventiveness and ingenuity. This year’s finalists were chosen from the 831 entries that competed in the regional invention contests and exhibits held in different regions of the country. The six categories of the invention contest are Outstanding Invention (Tuklas Award), Outstanding Utility Model, Outstanding Industrial Design, Outstanding Creative Research (Likha Award), and Outstanding Student Creative Research (Sibol Award) for high school and college students. The finalists will vie for the Presidential Awards for Inventions (Section 4, Article II of the Republic Act No. 7459) in the 2014 National Invention Contest to be held as a component of the National Science and Technology Week on July 2014. The 2014 NICE will recognize and honor the outstanding inventions and researches that help spur our country’s economic development.
We, at TAPI, salute the contributions of all the participating contestants and sponsors in promoting the Filipino inventors’ creativity and inventiveness. TAPI, in behalf of the DOST Regional Offices, the lead agency in the recently concluded Regional Cluster Invention Contests and Exhibits, express our sincere thanks to all and look forward to welcome you at the main event in SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia, Pasay City this July 2014.
