Innovation is arguably the main driver in initiating difference for the better and uplifting the welfare of the general population towards economic and social development as evidenced in a postmodern world.
The rise of new technologies, the new media for example, has inevitably revolutionized the way businesses communicate and transact, taking all risks of failure while welcoming revenues with no reservations.
The Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) has been a keen promoter of innovations since its conception in 1987. Serving as an effective and efficient dispensing body of deliverables to stakeholders and the general public, TAPI has been a consistent ally and supporter of Filipino inventions and breakthroughs by providing assistance through grants, consultancies, and contract researches.
