The Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) through its Applied Communications Unit for Inventors (ACU-i) will be distributing the first edition of a book series titled “Towards Attainment of Progress through Innovation” this August 2022.
After its soft launching during the TAPI Anniversary held last May 13, the agency targets to conduct physical and virtual launching and distribute printed copies of the book that features eight Filipino inventors to different stakeholders, including the DOST Regional Offices and partner agencies within the innovation ecosystem.
The highlights of the soft launching involved the recognition of the featured Filipino inventors who willingly participated and shared their life stories that served as inspiration and filled the main pages of the series’ first edition titled, “Tanaw”. The event also gave the public a glimpse of the book’s content and the creative process behind its development.
Tanaw’s book cover is illustrated by a visual artist from Baguio City, Danielle Florendo.
