DOST-10 Regional Director Alfonso Alamban said that the three-day fair will feature science and technology exhibits, a series of lectures on climate change and the enabling environment for innovations. It will also include a technology demonstration on innovative and environment-friendly technologies like the non-cyanide brush plating and anodizing. Director Alamban further said that FilipInnovation combines the words “Filipino” and “Innovation,” to highlight the thrust of DOST of having a new paradigm in the delivery of its programs, projects and services. The theme underlines the role of Filipino innovation in pushing the country towards development. It is also in line with DOST’s move to make local technologies available, accessible and affordable to Filipinos.
