As part of its commitment to create and develop a more vibrant and responsive science, technology and innovation culture in Tarlac, the Department of Science and Technology – Central Luzon has completed a series of capacity building seminars for the 19 municipal science and technology coordinators (MSTCs) in the province.
From January to March of this year, the MSTCs attended activities aimed at building their skills in identifying and implementing S&T -based development programs in their respective municipalities. First, they attended an orientation on DOST programs and services to familiarize them with its thrusts and priorities. This was followed by a seminar on situational analysis of strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT); technology needs assessment (TNA) and culminating in a project proposal writeshop.
These series of capacity building activities are part of the DOST commitment to connect, capacitate, and collaborate with local government units in Tarlac under its Municipal Innovation through Science and Technology (MIST) project. Under this project, DOST aims to push for more science-based solutions to community problems relating to health, livelihood, education and the environment.
Mrs. Karen Danez, provincial director for DOST-Tarlac said the agency is committed to provide funds for projects which are aligned with DOST priorities and in sync with the over-all development framework of the province.
