Taguig City - TAPI held its first experimental training on IP called "A Training-Workshop on Patent Drafting for DOST Researchers". The training-workshop was conducted at the TAPI Audio Visual Room last 17-19 June 2014.
Participants of the said training were researchers from DOST R&D Institutions, Regional Offices, Councils and Service Institutes and from SUCs. The three-day activity supported by DOST-HRDP aims to guide the researchers on acquiring basic skills needed in patenting. TAPI Director Engr. Edgar I. Garcia shared that this was in response to the call of the DOST management to increase the number of patents filed and approved in the country thus, contributing in the overall ratings of the Philippines in the Global Competitiveness Index.
