Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary Fortunato Dela Peña wants to increase the number of Intellectual Property (IP) registration in the country, citing there is "low IP registration here", particularly in the field of research and development (R&D).

As a way of encouraging researchers, the DOST provides monetary incentives for IP-registered discoveries or researches, Dela Peña told the Philippine News Agency (PNA). He clarified, however, that the monetary award is only for DOST researchers. "Other R&D institutes like state universities and colleges also have their own incentive systems," he explained. "At DOST, we include the potential of IP registration of R&D outputs in evaluating project proposals," Dela Peña said.

China is open to various kinds of collaborations with the Philippines in the field of science and technology (S&T), Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary Fortunato Dela Peña told the Philippine News Agency (PNA) on Friday.

Dela Pena just arrived in Manila on Friday, as he was part of President Rodrigo Duterte's delegation in the recently-concluded Boao Conference in China. Dela Peña was also with the President in visiting overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) in Hong Kong.

"(The conference) was very fruitful, as China eyes partnerships with us," he said. China is open to collaborations in telehealth, satellite, among others, according to the DOST chief.
