UP experts join PAASE bid to improve lives via science and innovation

Experts from the University of the Philippines (UP) joined other scientists based locally and abroad at the UP Diliman National Institute of Physics from October 24 to 25, 2018 to hold a series of discussions and consultations on how science, technology and innovation can improve the lives and industries of Filipinos today.

Led by members of the Philippine-American Academy of Science and Engineering (PAASE), the initiative was an opportunity for Filipino members of the scientific communities of the country and of the world to present position papers that contribute to the implementation of the Philippine Development Plan (PDP) 2017-2022 and the 25-year collective vision of Filipinos, AmBisyon Natin 2040. It served as a follow-up to the previously-held PAASE meeting at the University of Arizona, USA in April 2018.
