We wish to inform you that the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI) will conduct an Information Drive on the amended DOST Intellectual Property (IP)- related Policies to DOST offices. The activity will be held on 10-11 December 2019 in Park Inn by Radisson Davao (near SM Lanang)

Pursuant to the Philippine Technology Transfer Act of 2009 (Republic Act No. 10055), Chapter IX of the Act’s Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) requires the DOST to define its policy on IP and lay down institutional mechanisms for technology transfer activities. The two-day activity will provide discussions on the roles of DOST and its attached agencies as government funding agencies and research and development institutions in relations to technology transfer and commercialization.

In line with this, we are cordially inviting your researchers to attend the abovementioned activity together with your Technology Transfer and Business Development Officers (TTBDOs).
