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. 11 Internationalization 12 Extending the Reach of UP through its postgraduate academic programs Professional Masters in Tropical Marine Ecosystems Management (PM-TMEM) - offered by UP Diliman, UP Los Baños and UP Visayas PhD Public Administration and Governance – offered by UP Diliman in UP Visayas MS Conservation and Restoration Ecology – offered by UP Baguio 13 Need for quality (QA) assurance What is Quality Assurance System?

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.

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  for every disclosed invention and at least 10,000 pesos for every disclosed copyright that is approved by the TTBDO  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 application At least 25,000 pesos for each patent application and at least 15,000 pesos copyright application that is 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 CHED-FUNDED PCARI PROJECTS IN 2015: HEALTH: IHITM 63: High Throughput Screening of Philippine Terrestrial and Marine Organisms for Antimalarial Properties and Identification of Novel Drug Targets IHITM 109: Philippine UC-Collaboratory for Device Innovation (Education/Training Award) IHITM 131: Accessible Detection of Dengue using BioMems and MIP Materials A Proposal for the Expansion of the Shared Genomics Core Facility in the Philippines Information and Communication Infrastructure: IIID 13: Resilient Sensory Swarms for Smart Energy and Environmental Monitoring (RESE2NSE) IIID 31: The Village Base Station IIID 54: Resilient Cyber Physical Societal Scale Systems IIID 58: Cost-Effective Manufacturing Using Printing Fabrication Technologies For Energy Generation, Conditioning, and Monitoring Devices Intensifying Internationalization International linkages Implementing more working relationships with foreign universities and international institutions (research, student & faculty exchanges) Europe - 39 Asia - 188 N.
