Sinag Agri-Aqua

Are you an innovator, enabler of a technology, or an adopter that successfully commercialized a technology? This is your time to get recognized!

Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD) is now accepting nominations for the 2023 SINAG: S&T Innovations in Agri-Aqua Award.

The SINAG Award aims to recognize the effort of an individual, group of individuals, or organization instrumental in the successful adoption and commercialization of a component technology or package of technologies.

As mentioned, SINAG Award will recognize three entities involved in the commercialization of a technology such as the innovator, commercialization facilitator or enabler of a technology, and the adopter/entity that successfully commercialized a technology.

It will focus on technology commercialization, which refers to the technology transfer pathway of deriving income or profit from a technology, such as through the creation of a spin-off company, licensing, or the sale of the technology and/or intellectual property rights (IPRs), in the agriculture, aquatic, and natural resources (AANR) sectors.

The award is open to:

  • All Filipino individuals/ group of individuals/institutions who have shown outstanding performance on technology generation, facilitation and enablement, and commercialization of a locally generated technology;
  • Individuals/ groups/ institutions shall only be qualified if they showcase technology that has been commercialized already for at least two years preceding the award;
  • The featured technology should not have been previously conferred with a technology commercialization award by DOST-PCAARRD on the same category; and
  • As applicable, nominees must have been cleared of their obligations for administrative and reportorial requirements (e.g., audited financial, terminal reports) after having engaged in DOST-PCAARRD projects.
