We are pleased to announce that the DOST-Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology (DOST-PCIEERD) is opening a call for proposals for the PCIEERD Balik Scientist Program Research Grant.
The Balik Scientist Program (BSP) aims to promote science and technology information exchange and accelerate the flow of new and critical research and development into the country by inviting Filipino (or of Filipino descent) experts abroad to lend their knowledge and skills locally. The objective of this program is to strengthen and increase the scientific and technological manpower of the academe, government, and other private institutions throughout the country thereby spurring national progress.
To complement the Department of Science and Technology (DOST)’s current efforts of inviting potential Balik Scientists, the Philippine Council of Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research Division (PCIEERD) is opening its doors to new and ongoing Medium and Longterm PCIEERD Balik Scientists to submit an R&D proposal based on their current engagement and/or addressing a pressing industry, energy, and emerging technology (IEET) concerns.
This call for proposal is seeking Balik Scientists to usher in new perspectives, technologies, and solutions on IEET topics—power and energy, food security, clean water and sanitation, carbon neutrality and circular economy, blue economy and maritime, transportation and logistics, and modern materials and methods for industry advancement and entrepreneurship. Alternatively, a host institution may seek to engage a Balik Scientist to improve their science and technology endeavors in these areas and may actively present an R&D proposal with an already identified Balik Scientist and submit it to this call.
The deadline for the submission is on January 24, 2024. You can submit your application through this link: https://bsp.dost.gov.ph/online_application. For the proposal please access and complete this form: DOST Project Management Information System (DPMIS)
