Moreover, the celebration has become a platform for heralding S&T advocacy in the country.

This year’s theme, “Science for the People: Enabling Technologies for Sustainable Development,” features the latest innovation in technologies, products, and research that can help achieve the goals of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The NSTW is the perfect venue for the science community and enthusiasts, particularly the technology developers and investors including the S&T service providers and clients, to interact, exchange ideas, and pursue potential opportunities in technology commercialization and linkages.

Included in the NSTW celebration are the recognition of individuals in the science community who have shown great endeavors for basic and applied research and technology transfer, promotion and commercialization.

Also, scientific meetings, technical and investment forums, technology demonstrations, and technical tours are scheduled to be a part of the NSTW.
