The Department of Science & Technology-Negros Oriental participated in the recent Dauin Agro-Fair to promote its programs for Grade 12 students and for micro, small and medium entrepreneurs.

Atty. Gilbert Arbon, DOST provincial director, urged MSMEs to avail of the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP), a nationwide strategy for the adoption of technological innovations to improve products, services, operations, and increase productivity and competitiveness.

The municipality of Dauin, which is a tourism destination about 16 kilometers south of Dumaguete, is host to a sizeable number of MSMEs, particularly in the food processing and agriculture sectors.

This year, DOST has approved an application for SETUP from an MSME in Dauin. The client intends to upgrade the processing of its baked products.

DOST also promoted the DOST-SEI undergraduate scholarships to residents of Dauin. Grade 12 students were encouraged to apply for scholarships beginning this month.

At present, there are nine DOST scholars from the municipality of Dauin. Five of them enrolled at Negros Oriental State University are taking up Civil Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electronics & Communications Engineering, Geodetic Engineering, and Geothermal Engineering. Four other scholars from Dauin enrolled in Silliman University are taking up Biology, Mathematics, Medical Technology, and Physics. (Reinhold Jek Abing/DOST NegOr)
