    The memorandum of agreement was signed by representatives of DOST-SEI, HCPI, C&E Publishing, Inc., and Gokongwei Brothers Foundation last March 13 at the Sequoia Hotel in Paranaque .

    DOST-SEI Director Dr. Josette Biyo expressed her gratitude to the partners who are investing in young Filipino innovators. “I believe that through our partnership, more doors of opportunities will be opened, and more young people will be primed to become scientists and innovators – creating and collaborating for a better future,” she said.

    Under the imake.wemake innovation competition, three schools will each receive a Youth Innovation cash grant of P200,000. This would be after a build period of about 90 days allotted for finalists to design, build, and complete their working prototype, including test deployment in their chosen community.

    “Honda Cars is honored to be a part of the imake.wemake program. What you are doing here truly resonates with us. As the students use their creative energies and smart ideas to craft solutions to many of society’s problems, Honda, the Power of Dreams, is unwavering about greater value through superior safety and environmental performance. We appreciate how this program promotes the application of science and technology in creating solutions and pursuing big dreams,” HCPI Vice President, Atty. Louie Soriano was quoted as saying.
