The Philippine embassy in the US through its San Francisco consulate on Saturday launched the very first Registry of Foreign-Based Filipino Scientists, Engineers, and Technology Entrepreneurs (Technopreneurs).
The Philippine government hopes to tap into the pool of exemplary Filipino scientists and techno entrepreneurs who are making a name for themselves outside their home country. The Philippines lags among Asean countries in its pursuit of major socio-economic transformation and advancement by cultivating its local academic pool.
Accessing the registry can be done through the following steps:
- log on to the website;
- click the DoST Registry for Scientists, Engineers, and Technology Entrepreneurs;
- accomplish the form online and submit;
- acknowledgement/notification shall be received by the registrant through e-mail.
Registrants in the registry shall receive regular updates of the registry project.
