Strategies:
Balance…
 competition and cooperation
 biology and ecology
(nationalism and internationalism)
Personal attributes:
 humility and pride
 will power and leadership to attain the
higher, greater, long-term good
Goals in the university:
 academic excellence
 operational excellence
10
Nationalism and Internationalization
 For UP, as a national university, internationalization
can be viewed as a means to enhance its capability
to serve the country and the people.
 UP can learn from the best practices of other
universities worldwide through enhanced
collaboration.
 Nationalism serves as a driver for the direction of
UP’s teaching and research programs.
 UP as the national university must seek to define and
promote a truly Filipino identity and serve the needs
of our county
 In turn, this tack can create a distinct Filipino identity
or innovation that we can banner across the globe
as we become a functional part of the greater world
we live in.

UPLB INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDIES AND PROGRAMS:
1. Food and Nutrition Security and Safety Studies Center
The Center is envisioned to be a national center of excellence in
interdisciplinary research, teaching, and training for food and nutrition security. It
will be identified as the national leader in manpower development, research,
policy advocacy, capacity building, and knowledge management pertaining to
the country’s national food and nutrition security.
2. Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Studies Center
The Center is envisioned to be a world-class research center providing sciencebased information and knowledge to the Filipino people. It will develop national
and local climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies for climateresilient agriculture, environment, and the natural resources sectors.
3. Center for Integrated Natural Resources and Environmental
Management (INREM)
The Center promotes the integrated approach to natural resources and
environmental management whose central tenet is the intricate relationship
between the sustainability of ecosystems and the sustainability of human
systems. Specifically, INREM puts forth a systemic and holistic approach to
problem analysis and solving using appropriate analytical units such as the
watershed/river basin, ecosystem, and landscape. It uses a holistic approach
that looks comprehensively at the direct and indirect drivers of resources
degradation and how these drivers can be dealt with so as to provide lasting
solutions to problems.

Transforming UP into a Research-Intensive University
UP’s National Institutes of Health (NIH)
 Created in 1996 as an institutional umbrella for a network of various research
and extension units in health and socio-biomedical concerns.
 After 17 years, NIH will have a modern building in UP Manila: approved budget
of P1B for 12 storeys with internationally-rated laboratories with a total of
34,400 sqm. floor area.
NIH now has 10 institutes:

Transforming UP into a Research-Intensive University
UP’s Philippine Genome Center (PGC) launched in Nov. 2011
 Facilitates the translation of knowledge in genomics into applications beneficial to
society: (1) health; (2) agriculture, livestock & fisheries; (3) biodiversity; (4)
forensics & ethnicity; (5) ethics, legal and social issues.
 Has 2 state-of-the-art facilities supported by DOST: (1) DNA Sequencing Core
Facility and (2) Core Facility for Bioinformatics featuring an IBM supercomputer (not
available before in the Philippines (April 2014).
 Welcomes collaborators from the academe, government, & industry.
 PGC Building in the National Science Complex, Diliman: Phase 1 ground breaking
held in April 2014; Phase 2 funding included in the 2015 budget.
Strengthening & Incentivizing the Faculty
 The UP faculty is a precious resource that the nation must nurture.
 Replenishing retirees and increasing
masters and doctorates:
o
Recruiting PhDs and postdocs from
abroad and providing incentives
o
Financing for PhD and postgraduate
studies (UP & abroad)
o

Financing for sandwich programs (MS
thesis and PhD dissertations abroad)
COOPERATE program

 industry priorities (private good, job creation for public good)
 academic and basic “pie-in-the-sky” research priorities

Aims to build strong, competent research groups
or clusters led by expert senior faculty mentoring junior
faculty and postgraduate and UG students for long-term
capability building

Encourages collaborations between science and
engineering fields and the arts, culture and humanities

Invention or Copyright Disclosure
Incentive
Rationale
Situation
Patent: 57 applications in 21 years (1992 to 2013): 21 percent were
granted, 64.9 percent pending, 5.3 percent abandoned, 5.3 percent
lapsed
Copyright: 22 copyright registration applications from 2002 to 2011,
some years with no application filed
Considerations
1. Improve our batting average: in general only 10 out of 100
disclosed inventions are patentable and marketable
2. Protect the rights of inventors and creative artists/authors even
before they have sought protection: public use (e.g., papers,
articles, talks or public discussions, performances, open access
and use in the internet) can invalidate patentability
3. Safeguard the rights of the University: Even if inventors and
creative artists have no interest in using their works for financial
gain, disclosures are still necessary for the University to
determine its rights to these works.
Award
monetary
incentive for
disclosure
At least 15,000
pesos [1] for
every disclosed
invention and at
least 10,000
pesos for every
disclosed
copyright that is
approved by the
TTBDO
[1] Given, in full,
directly to the inventor
or copyright owner
(faculty member,
researcher or student).
Whoever takes the
lead in filing the
disclosure will receive
the amount on behalf
of the inventors or
copyright owners. No
share will go to
Conduct prior art
search and write
patent/copyright
applications
TTBDO and the
Intellectual
Property/Technolog
y Transfer offices of
the Constituent
University will
provide funds and
certified patent
agents; UP will
provide legal
experts
Award
additional
monetary
incentive for
completion
and filing of

At least 25,000
pesos for each
patent application
and at least
15,000 pesos

completed and
filed.
Award
Technology
Transfer Grant
If the disclosure is
deemed to be
very promising
but requires a
little more work,
i.e., to show
stronger proof of
principle or proof
of concept, the
TTBDO can
provide a
Technology
Transfer Grant of
approximately
500,000 pesos.
Disclosure Form
 Will contain basic information (what is the invention, why is
it patentable, what is the prior art, who are the inventors
and what are their contributions), explanation or outline of
the disclosure and patent/copyright application process,
and financial incentives at every stage of the process.
 To be attached to every UP- and externally-funded project
application and approval form, and to every undergraduate
and graduate thesis approval form
 To be disseminated by the TTBDO staff which will actively
solicit disclosures from leading, productive researchers and
creative artists/authors with significant projects
 Will serve as a contract between the inventors or creative
artists/authors and the TTBDO, and will indicate that
TTBDO will honor the confidentiality and nondisclosure of
the invention or copyright disclosure
