One way by which academe may contribute to the advancement of the global competitiveness of the Philippine economy is to work with industry. More specifically, there is a need to carry out academe-industry collaboration to the level where both sectors may bring research and development to bear upon the needs of society. Academe and industry may work together in each or all parts of the innovation engine: effective ideation, research, development, and application of technology. Here, application is used to include commercial and non-commercial uses of technology to solve problems of society. By collaborating, the two sectors may also help the evolution of research in academia towards a more needs-based and outcomes-based orientation.
To articulate the challenges, new directions, and best practices in academe-industry collaboration, the Engineering Research and Development for Technology (ERDT) will be conducting its 5th ERDT Congress on 17 February 2017 at SMX Convention Center, Pasay City with the theme of “Intensifying Academe-Industry Collaboration for Research and Development in the Philippines.”
The ERDT Congress is a yearly event where researchers, ERDT scholars, visiting professors, industry, government, and other experts gather and get inspired by plenary lectures of highly distinguished professors and experts all over the world. The Congress also serves as a platform in setting directions for research and development.
For your reference, please see tentative program.
