Following the theme for 2019 National Science and Technology Week (NSTW), “Science for the People: Enabling Technologies for Sustainable Development” is also the theme for the 2019 RSTW and BRICE. For Bicol, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) group/cluster includes Resilience and Innovation; Equity and Growth in the Countryside; Food Security, Energy and Environment; and S&T Human Resource Development.

To all our S&T partners, you are cordially invited to celebrate with us and take an active part in the 2019 RSTW and BRICE. (Dr. P.O. Lucena, DOST V)

The Department of Science and Technology Regional Office V conducted an Orientation-Workshop on Maximizing Use of Elsevier's Tools for Research and Publication last May 29, 2019, at Kanzol Hall and Restaurant, Peñaranda St., Legazpi City.


This activity was sponsored by the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD), one of the sectoral council of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).


PCIEERD subscribed to Elsevier's Science Direct and Scopus Database to provide access for the State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) and other R&D partner institutions which are anticipated to help scientific publications from the RDIs and academe in the region.

The Health Policy Development and Planning Bureau, Department of Health and the Philippine Council for Health Research and Development, Department of Science and Technology is scheduled to conduct a one day joint meeting to formally launch the new health policy and systems research priorities for 2019 under the Advancing Health through Evidence-Assisted Decisions with Health Policy and Systems Research (AHEAD-HPSR) Program of the Department of Health on January 30, 2019 at  Hotel Jen, Roxas Blvd. Manila.

The AHEAD-HPSR Program has been developed to operationalize the FOURmula ONE for Health (F1) Plus Framework’s commitment to instill a culture of research, strengthen internal analytic capacity in the DOH, and build health policy systems research capacity within the sector.  The objectives of this meeting are as follows:
