Following the success of the Luzon and Visayas leg, the Department of Science and Technology is bringing the third and final installment of this year’s Technology Transfer Day in Davao City. This Mindanao-wide activity aims at promoting the DOST generated and assisted technologies to its intended beneficiaries, stakeholders, and private sectors.

“Nagawa na namin ito sa Manila and Ormoc City, tuwang tuwa kami dahil doon mismo sa site, nagkaroon ng mga deals, may fairness opinion reports, may licensing,” said Usec. Rowena Cristina Guevara in a press conference.

Guevara, who is the current DOST Undersecretary for Research and Development, also mentioned that the technologies that will be presented are the products of the last three years of research and development.

“Dala namin ay 74 technologies, na tapos na and ready for transfer either by deployment or by commercial route,” she added.

One of the technologies that will be presented is the knee replacement system that is designed specifically for the Asians. It is made in the Philippines and co-funded by the DOST.

Broadly, all the technologies that will be featured are for the agriculture, food industry, health, environment and disaster risk reduction, crafts and textiles, and the ICT sector.
