DOST-MIRDC visits region's 1st Metals and Engineering Innovation Center at IFSU-Lagawe

The Department of Science and Technology- Metals Industry Research and Development Center (DOST-MIRDC) led by Dr. Agustin M. Fudolig, Deputy Executive Director for Research and Development and Project Leader, and his team visited the first Metals and Engineering Innovation Center (MEIC) in the Cordillera Region at the Lagawe Campus of Ifugao State University on February 02, 2023.

The center is a product of a tri-party agreement among IFSU, DOST-Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), and DOST-MIRDC. It serves as an avenue for the conduct of research and to develop and strengthen the capabilities of the institution's human resources, including students and faculty.

In December 2020, officials of DOST-CAR, DOST-MIRDC, and IFSU virtually soft-launched MEIC and inked a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). Despite the challenges during the pandemic, MEIC delivered its targets.

During the visit, concerns regarding the optimal utilization of the center's equipment were discussed.
