The DOST is now accepting proposals for the following programs:

Collaborative Research and Development to Leverage Philippine Economy (CRADLE) Program

The program encourages a synergistic relationship between the academe as producer of knowledge and manpower, and the industry as the entity which translates technologies to real world applications to generate new opportunities for Filipinos in the form of new industries, enterprises, jobs and solutions to pressing community and national problems.
