To develop the promotion of local researches that could bridge gaps in the industry, the Department of Science and Technology (DoST) of Eastern Visayas is pushing Filipino scientists and inventors to join the 2010 Visayas Island Convention Contest and Exhibits.

In this region, problems in the agriculture sector are the concerns. DOST wants local inventors to focus their studies to address the gaps presented.

Edgardo M. Esperancilla, DoST regional director, said that there were inventions that have remained untouched because these do not deal with a particular industry need.

And by working together with the local researchers, it is expected that studies will be focused on resolving poverty and other common concerns.

The Visayas leg of the annual contest will be on Aug. 12-14 at the Amigo Plaza Mall in Iloilo City. With this year's theme: "Filipino Inventions and Innovations: The Way Forward," contest categories will be invention, utility model, industrial design, creative research and student creative research for both secondary and college level.

This program is expected to bring inventions to a higher level that would showcase their works to investors and other stakeholders. [via bworldonline.com]
