By Ramon David Castañeda
Celebrating the milestones of any institution is key to recognizing just how far it has progressed. And for the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (DOST-TAPI), TAPI @ 36 was the opportunity to do just that.
Held last January 31, 2023, at the Sequoia Hotel Manila Bay, the gala honored more than three decades of aiming to achieve new heights, awarded exemplary staff, and held an oath-taking ceremony for the new TAPI Employees’ Association, Inc. officers.
With the theme, “Strengthening Innovation for National Advancement and Growth” or SINAG, the gala opened with remarks from DOST-TAPI Director Atty. Marion Ivy Decena. Citing that the work at the institute may sometimes involve hurdles, she mentioned, “Tulad ng sinag ng araw…minsan damang dama natin ang init, may mga pagkakataon na dumadating ang bagyo.” “I want to encourage you to stand firm amid the difficulties and [to] face the challenges ahead as responsible and dedicated public servants,” she stated.
The celebration also featured testimonials of DOST-TAPI’s various beneficiaries, including those under the Investment and Business Operations Division’s commercialization programs: Manna Shameyn Enterprises Manager Jade Serrano and Compact Pharmaceuticals Corporation President and Chief Executive Officer Jose Valerio Calleja.
