The Technology Application and Promotion Institute of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-TAPI) represented Filipino technologies and inventions in the 2017 Taipei International Invention Show and Technomart (INST) on 28-30 September 2017 in Taipei World Trade Center, Taiwan.
The INST provides a venue to promote the commercialization of Taiwanese and foreign intellectual properties and technologies for an international market.
Moreover, the INST serves as an exchange platform for academic researchers, innovators, and the public to recognize technological advancements and open opportunities for business transactions.
The event was organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), a non-profit organization which assists Taiwanese businesses and manufacturers in strengthening their competitiveness in handling the needs of the market in an international and global scale.
The exhibit featured local and international products and technologies ranging from agricultural products, biotechnology, building materials and sanitary equipment, chemical materials, computer hardware, software and peripherals, consumer electronics, telecommunications, textiles, and transportation, to name a few.
“The INST is an excellent venue in promoting our Filipino technologies and inventions for possible technology transfer and commercialization, or business to business opportunities,” said Jena Kristia A. Florendo, Science Research Specialist II of DOST-TAPI.
“As a matter of fact, Taiwanese investors have stated their interest in visiting the DOST for dialogue and possible partnership in adopting our local technologies,” added Florendo.
The INST was visited by at least sixty thousand (60,000) local and international participants from the government agencies, research institutions, research and development manufacturers, inventors and related groups, and venture entrepreneurs.
