MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Science and Technology- Science Education Institute (DOST-SEI) and the BPI Foundation Inc. (BPIF), the social development arm of the Bank of the Philippine Islands, have entered into a partnership for the annual BPI-DOST Innovation Awards program.

The BPI-DOST Innovation Awards aims to challenge Filipino students to actively participate in resolving problems in the community through science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The BPI-DOST Innovation Awards is open to all regular junior and senior (3rd – 5th year) college students of STEM. They can join in teams composed of three students, and shall showcase an innovation project that addresses problems in the fields of agriculture, disaster management, education, entrepreneurship, environment, food safety, health, security, transportation, and traffic or road congestion.

“DOST and BPIF have this shared vision to boost interest and awareness on the value of S&T and innovation in the economy. We both hope to encourage many others to pursue research in the sciences and ultimately set an environment that is healthy for innovation and creation of high value products or solutions,” DOST-SEI head Josette Biyo said.
