Graduating elementary students wishing to get a scholarship and study at the Philippine Science High School (PSHS) may now access the PSHS Reviewer in preparation for the entrance examination that will be held on September 18, 2013 nationwide.
A free online reviewer was developed for this purpose.  According to Dr. Rowena Cristina L. Guevara, Executive Director of the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST-PCIEERD), the online reviewer is ready and may be accessed via these sites: and this is internet-based, it is accessible to any interested party, most especially to those who wish to simulate the examination, or those cannot afford to enroll in private review centers or have no access at all to such reviewers. This is also the official practice test provided by the PSHS.

The Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD-DOST) resolves to strengthen links between  public and private industries to create a mindset of innovation for a more advanced Philippines. 

Public-private partnerships have been long proven to be a powerful strategy in development activities. This is the theme of PCIEERD-DOST 3rd anniversary on June 28, 2013 at the New World Hotel, Makati. A Technical Forum that revolves around the theme "Partnering with Industry Towards Inclusive Growth for a More Competitive Philippines" will be conducted. The Honorable Mario G. Montejo, DOST Secretary will grace the event and will give a Message to DOST’s partners and allies in S&T.  To set the forum to its right perspective, a powerhouse line up of distinguished speakers and discussions will be  led by no less than the Honorable Arsenio M. Balisacan, NEDA Director General as Keynote Speaker. He will talk on "Inclusive Growth for a More Competitive Philippines".  Dr. Corazon H.

Science and technology (S&T) can make mineral extraction safe and sustainable. This is according to the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

Dr. Amelia P. Guevara, DOST Undersecretary for Research and Development, said that responsible mining – one that is based on science and technology – can be a driver of the country’s economic development.

USec. Guevara represented the DOST in a recent signing of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with four state universities and colleges (SUCs) for the conduct of a research program that aims to ensure responsible mining in Mindanao.

The research program, titled “S&T Program for Responsible Mining in Mindanao,” aims for a socially-acceptable, economically viable, environment-friendly and ecologically sound mining in the region anchored on sound decision support system developed from information and technologies generated through research and development.

To advance local researches in health care, forensics and agriculture, the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is boosting the country’s capability in genomics and bioinformatics through the establishment of a new core facility.

The DOST through the Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development (PCIEERD) provided an initial budget of P98 million for the three-year establishment of DNA Sequencing and Bioinformatics Core Facilities at the Philippines Genome Center (PGC). The facilities will be located at the National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the University of the Philippines Diliman in Quezon City and will be launched on October 11, 2012.
