MIRDC’S Technologies At NSTW 2014
The NSTW is an annual celebration of the DOST system. It will be a five-day event that will feature DOST priority programs for 2013-2016. This year, the 2014 NSTW is themed “Philippines: A Science Nation Meeting Global Challenges.”
The MIRDC technologies are highlighted in Outcome 3 booths (C3 – C48). Outcome 3, focusing on Industry Competitiveness: “Galing ni Juan para sa Bayan, para sa ASEAN,” will feature exciting and interactive exhibits of the MIRDC together with other DOST agencies.
The exhibits present innovations particularly from Filipino-led programs and projects. Anchor exhibits are as follows: (1) an RV 12 airplane; and (2) airplane parts, such as actuators and servo valves. Also, the Outcome 3 centerpiece will bring the viewers close to DOST’s world-class laboratories that are already serving the needs of industries such as the Advanced Device and Materials Testing Laboratory (ADMATEL), One-Stop-Shop Furniture Testing Service, Philippine Genome Center, and Environment Technology Verification (ETV)/Energy Audit.
Among the MIRDC technologies that will be presented are the following: Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Design Center; Surface Engineering; Die and Mold Solution Center; and the Centrally-powered Hybrid Electric Road Train (CRT).
The technologies that will be featured in the NSTW could inspire future entrepreneurs, open bigger opportunities for businessmen, and expand access to informative materials for the benefit of researchers and the learning public.
Those who are willing to visit the SMX exhibits are welcome to view these interesting innovations and can exchange ideas with the technocrats, engineers and scientists who will accommodate viewers. Those coming in large groups are most welcome by the DOST community.
