PROMOTION INSTITUTE

SECRETARY’S

Message

ruly, the year 2015 had been a very productive and successful year for the Technology Application and Promotion Institute as it pursued more efficient and more responsive ways of supporting our inventors, local enterprises, the academe and various stakeholders through programs in invention and innovation assistance, technology transfer and commercialization, and marketing and promotion. In 2015, TAPI convened its first Fairness Opinion Board as part of its expanding mandate stipulated under Republic Act 10055 or the Philippine Technology Transfer Act of 2009. It was a pleasure to receive the first Fairness Opinion Report, which evaluated the licensing agreement for the commercialization of an advanced data logger developed by DOST’s Advanced Science and Technology Institute. I hope this will be the beginning of more opportunities for our S&T community to confidently delve into technology transfer. It is noteworthy to mention how TAPI was able to sustain its gains in protecting intellectual property rights of our homegrown innovations. The Institute has exceeded its annual target of 100 IP applications for the past two years. I am excited to see how this impressive effort will contribute to improving our country’s innovation score and standing in the Global Competitiveness Index. TAPI also continues to be highly instrumental in the growth of MSMEs through S&T interventions and assistance in venture financing, entrepreneurial capacity building, technical consultancy, productivity improvement and invention development. Finally, I am delighted to see TAPI consistently meeting the challenge of organizing bigger and better National Science and Technology Week celebrations, Science Nation fairs, and regional and national invention contests year after year. The 2015 NSTW drew in more than 83,000 visitors— an overwhelming improvement with a 500% increase in visits compared to the average attendance between 2010 and 2014. These activities assure us that the DOST’s advancements and breakthroughs in science and technology are translated into interactive and immersive experiences enjoyed by everyday Filipinos. For me, this is a fulfillment of our vision “agham na ramdam” at its best. As a Filipino inventor who fiercely believes that technology for the greatergood of people and society makes good business sense, I am very privileged to work with TAPI in cultivating a supportive and enriching ecosystem for local innovations. Best wishes to the men and women of TAPI who shall continue to make DOST proud in years to come. Mabuhay!

Secretary, DOST

Message

DIRECTOR’S

he year 2015 brought us extreme pride and satisfaction in the performance of our mandated functions not only as the technology transfer arm of the DOST system, per Executive No. 128, but also as a partner of our private inventors in accordance with the Republic Act No. 7459 otherwise known as the “Inventors and Invention Incentives Act of the Philippines”. Our mandated function as the Secretariat of the Fairness Opinion Board (FOB) in accordance with the Republic Act No. 10055, otherwise known as the “Philippine Technology Transfer Act of 2009”, was finally realized when we convened the first-ever FOB. The accomplishments of TAPI showed the dynamism of our staff to meet the challenges on the additional responsibility as required by law. We would like to thank our partners and the DOST Family in the achievement of these milestones and gains. Rest assured that you will continue to be our inspiration and our motivation to continuously and continually improve our services. We also thank the DOST Secretary, Honorable Mario G. Montejo, and other DOST officials for their trust and confidence that motivated us to effectively carry out the mandated functions and bringing our accomplishments to a new height. With this support, TAPI was able to strongly position itself as a robust technology commercialization partner for other DOST agencies.

Director, TAPI

Our ultimate goal and passion to serve and protect the interests of Filipino inventors and innovators shall always remain.

stablishing and maintaining a national measurement system infrastructure that provides for standards and measurement that are internationally traceable is a requirement for globalization. One of the priority projects of the DOST is the continuous upgrading of the standards and testing laboratories of the regions. These laboratories were established to support the development of the key industries in each region. Cavites’s rapid industrialization must be complemented with a balanced environmental management of Laguna Lake and Manila Bay basins to sustain its growth. At present, there are fifteen (15) industries in full operation in the province. These estates consist of tenants engaged in manufacturing of food, metal, steel, electronic, paper and plastic products. The establishment of the Cavite Water and Wastewater Testing Laboratory (CWWTL) of DOST IV-A Cavite 16 years ago, played a major role in assisting these manufacturing firms to comply with the regulatory requirements of environment, specifically on waste water effluent disposal. The growing need of these industries for better laboratory services must be met in order to

support their continuous development. These major concerns definitely call for an appropriate maintenance system that will be applicable to the procedures being observed and done at the DOST IV CWWTL to maintain and improve laboratory services. Through the Venture Financing Program of TAPI therefore, DOST IVA CWWTL can improve the efficiency of laboratory services that will assist the manufacturing firms to observe regulatory environmental requirements on waste water effluent disposal. The assistance will also increase the capacity of CWWTL to accept more test samples, increase number of clients who will avail of the laboratory services due to the better services provided in effect will increase the net income from laboratory services. DOST-CALABARZON Cavite Water and Wastewater Testing Laboratory (CWWTL) is ISO 17025:2005 certified, DENR-EMB recognized, and accredited by the Department of Health – Bureau of Laboratory Standards.

TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER AND COMMERCIALIZATION

Brgy. Sta. Maria, Maharlika Highway, Lai-lo, Cagayan The following are CAMPI Program’s successful projects to name a few:

orphil Healthy Foods Corporation was incorporated in 2009 and owned by Ms. Elaine Vanezza Collado. The Company was established to manufacture and market food products which include Nutricol Fruit Juice Drink (Apple and Orange 200 mL stand-up pouch). The products were initially distributed to Regions I and II, and eventually expanded to Regions III and IV. The Company's processing plant is strategically located in Sta. Maria, Lal-lo, Cagayan in order to take advantage of the very high agricultural productivity of Cagayan that would provide a secured year round supply of raw materials and the northeastern seaboard's infrastructure that would provide easy access to export markets on a longer term. Another reason why the processing plant is located in this place is to bring development to this area as there are no other people or organizations that are engaged in this kind of business inspite of its very robust agricultural potential. The company aims a world class quality food products which are manufactured by the country’s big and leading Food and Beverage manufacturing companies in terms of their quality, manufacturing and marketing strategies. Thus, the consumer preference and food safety are two of the driving factors of the firm to pursue standardization and compliance in all aspects of their operations.

CAMPI PROGRAM

CAMPI interventions through the Technology Plus Products Consultancy include: cGMP and SSOP seminars to staff & management, documentation of Food Safety Manual (Policies, Organizational Structure and Work Instruction), improvement in the process flow in cooling and batching, warehouse layout, and sanitary facilities and overall operations. During the project monitoring visit conducted by Ms, Rosemarie Olaer, Program Manager, CAMPI together with Dr. Teresita Tabaog, PSTD-Cagayan in August 2015, Ms. Collado is happy to inform the team that their License to Operate (LTO) with FDA-0070218 was issued in June 2015. She reiterated that TPPSC Consultants through CAMPI is a big help in the issuance of their LTO and continuously aligning their plant for GMP Certification. Food Development Center (FDC) has conducted assessment in November 2015 to be followed by unannounced visit in January 2016 for GMP Certification. Additional investment incurred in the improvement of structure and warehouse amounted to ₱1.5M while upgrading of filling machine increased its production and sales by 80%. The firm now has 22 cooking batches per day producing 120 boxes of stand-up pouch juices per batch.

HEALTHY SWEETS

KATIPUNAN , PANABO CITY, DAVAO DEL NORTE

Healthy Sweets owned by Ms. Betty More started processing coconuts and other fruits with less than ₱200,000 invested in a small processing plant and equipment. They started processing manually in CY 2000 but after three years, they were able to acquire a mechanized cooker with stirrer under the Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) of the Department of Science and Technology. Today, the company produces organic coconut sugar, ginger/ guyabano/turmeric candies and teas, and cacao nibs coated. The firm is one of the beneficiaries of the project entitled “S&T Intervention to Levelup Small and Medium Food Industries (SMEs) in Davao” under the Consultancy for Agricultural and Manufacturing Productivity Improvement (CAMPI) Program Implementation in Region XI. CAMPI provides consultancy services in improving the firms’ processes and facilities. The assistance of TAPI under the CAMPI program is very timely because of the increasing demand from the foreign and local buyers. This was

CAMPI PROGRAM

attributed to the current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) that they are implementing in their processing plant under CAMPI. According to Ms. More, “foreign buyers usually inspect first the plant before they negotiate for the price. If they are impressed and the plant passed their standards then you can get more orders”. The foreign buyers also share with them their experiences with other companies that they visited in the Philippines. They said that “if companies just follow the GMP then they could also have taken orders from them”. Through CAMPI interventions in order to be GMP compliant, Healthy Sweets invested an amount of ₱20,000 to improve the plant structure. As a result, the market order increased, thus, expanding the production area and cost them ₱500,000 as additional investment for the coconut syrup production plant. The company was able to comply and implement the food safety requirements and was issued a License to Operate (LTO) and current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) issued by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). Net income increased from ₱548,598 to ₱575,000 in CY 2015 and generated an additional employment of 12 workers. Now, there are new demands in the local and international market that they have to respond. More Japanese buyers are becoming interested with their coconut sugar and other coco sugar-based products. Healthy Sweets need to expand their processing plant and acquire additional tools and equipment to increase their production.

LSV is an anti-loose brake device attached along the brake fluid pipes of each brake assembly of the wheels particularly for PUV. When a leak occurs on the brake assembly of a particular wheel, LSV automatically locks the damaged assembly and cuts off the supply of brake fluid to it preventing further loss of fluid. LSV allows the remaining undamaged wheel brake assemblies to function by retaining the fluid pressure in these assemblies. Thus, avoiding loss of brake and maintaining the driver’s directional stability and control over steering. The invention won First Place both in 2015 AMY IP Awards and 2015 RICE in CALABARZON (Invention Category) and was featured in TV program, Game Changer as one of the very promising Filipino inventions.

It was during this year that TAPI started to build its own database of experts and initially collaborated with the National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) to tap its 3,000-strong membership of research and development experts, and the Association of PAQE Professionals, Inc. (APP) as the sole association of registered patent agents in the Philippines.

Phase 1: Creation of an IP database management system and provision of initial support to the Fairness Opinion Board for 12 DOST-generated technologies As a milestone accomplishment of TAPI five years after the enactment of the Republic Act No. 10055, otherwise known as the “Philippine Technology Transfer Act of 2009”, DOST Memorandum Circular No. 003 dated September 15, 2015 was issued to provide the guidelines on the constitution of the Fairness Opinion Board (FOB) and the issuance of Fairness Opinion Report (FOR).

TAPI 2015 Annual Report

As the FOB Secretariat, TAPI must ensure that the FOB shall be constituted within 30 days from the request for the issuance of FOR, and within 60 days from the said FOB constitution a fairness opinion has been released by the Secretary of the DOST. All government-funded research projects are required by law to be subjected to a Fairness Opinion of the DOST Secretary

As another milestone accomplishment, the first FOB was finally constituted to evaluate the proposed licensing agreement on Advanced Remote Data Acquisition (to be marketed as “arQ”) of the Advanced Science and Technology Institute of DOST as Licensor with the Alexan Commercial Enterprise. Per DOST Special Order No. 736 dated 12 November 2015, the first FOB was composed of Registered Patent Agents in the Philippines and Trustees of the APP, namely: Atty. Bayani B. Loste, Partner of Fortun Narvasa & Salazar Law Offices; Mr. Noel A. Catibog of the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARD); and Mr. Jerry C. Serapion of the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice). Just before the year ends, the second request for the issuance of an FOR was received by the FOB Secretariat from the University of the Philippines to review its proposed transaction for its technology, “Detection of Pathogens”, with the Manila Health Tek Inc. The second FOB shall be constituted early next year.

It was also during this year that TAPI has filed three (3) cases in court in collaboration with the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) lawyers against delinquent inventors. TAPI was able to secure a Writ of Replevin against Arquilino Y. Melano, Jr., Vazbuilt Incorporation and Felicito P. Plaza. The Writ of Replevin against Plaza was successfully implemented and the properties were placed at TAPI’s basement for safekeeping. Site visits were conducted for five (5) inventors to check and assess the estimated market value of the mortgage properties:

1.Rodolfo C. Arambulo’s property 2.Arquilino Y. Melano, Jr.’s property 3.Rizal A. Obligar and Herminia B. Obligar’s Property 4.Edgardo G.
