According to Jairus Lachica, DOST-Aklan Provincial Science and Technology Officer, the Regional Cluster Invention Contest serves as the elimination/qualifying round for the National Invention Contest pursuant to Section 4 of the Republic Act No. 7459 also known as the Inventors and Invention Incentives Act of the Philippines. The outcome of this: no one in Aklan could represent the province, present his creation or join in the forthcoming Regional Cluster Invention Contest which will be held from August 12 to 15 this year at the Amigo Terrace Hotel in Iloilo City.

Visayas Cluster Regions 6, 7 and 8 will join the contest in Iloilo city next month. Talented Filipinos from public and private sector inventors and researchers within the Cluster Region may join the contest with 6 categories namely Invention Category (Tuklas Award); Utility Model Category; Industrial Design Category; Creative Research Category (Likha Award); Student Creative Research Category (Sibol Award) for High School and Studen Creative Research Category (Sibol Award) for College. Filipino inventors, makers, designers, and creative researchers residing in the Regional Cluster are eligible to join in any of the six contest categories. But, an invention, a utility model, an industrial design or a creative research can be an entry in only one regional cluster invention contest per year. Three qualifiers will be selected for each regional cluster in each category. The qualifiers must submit the additional documents to be able to join the finals for the National Invention Contest. In the awarding ceremony, a qualifier will receive a cash incentives of P10,000, a certificate and a plaque. Concerned and potential inventors in Aklan will witness the competition and the display of inventions.

Do not keep your inventions to yourselves. Show them and have you inventions patented, or else, others with the same invention will beat you to it, Lachica said. [via pia.gov.ph]
