THE BATANGAS State University collaborated with higher education institutions to share advances in various fields and stages of technology applications and commercialization.

Over 470 participants from local higher education institutions, private institutions, and business organizations joined the 5th International Research Conference on Innovations in Engineering, Science and Technology.

The conference served as a dynamic platform for S&T and engineering students, professionals, technopreneurs and researchers.

Dr. Tirso A. Ronquillo, university president, said that the main goal of the event was to enlist researchers from different institutions across the globe to do more collaborative work to provide innovative solutions to the immediate problems in the “new normal.”

“The Batangas State University remains committed to strengthening and enhancing the capabilities of our researchers as we continue to build upon our commitment to forging a country that is able to reap the fruits of innovation in engineering, science and technology in the knowledge-based economy,” Ronquillo said.

During the event, Science and Technology Secretary Fortunato Dela Peña presented projects his agency crafted under the Science and Technology for a Resilient Community against the Pandemic or STRAP program.

“As part of the scientific community, we will continue to find solutions that our rich human resources can put up through our support for science and technology projects. We need to collaborate and partner more with our universities and research institutions to take part in our endeavors in research and development,” he said.
