DOST-MIMAROPA gives high priority in the conduct of technology trainings, seminars and similar activities. This is primarily in recognition of the catalytic role of technology training in technology transfer and commercialization.
There are generally three (3) kinds of trainings being conducted by the regional office. The first are firm level trainings which are mostly requested by MSMEs either for upgrading of their existing technology or for acquisition of new technology which they intend to commercialize. The second are those that are requested by LGUs, NGOs and people’s organizations, trade associations and similar organizations. This kind of training is being undertaken in collaboration with other partners. The third type comprises public trainings that are implemented with strategic partners who participate in the planning, invitation of participants, collection and management of fees generated and the over-all administration of the activity.
