CSU promotes technology commercialization projects

Tuguegarao City (23 February) -- In support to the thrust of the present administration on poverty alleviation, the Cagayan State University (CSU) is implementing and enhancing its research and development programs to promote technology management and commercialization.

Dr. Roger P. Perez, University President, said under the extension programs, they implemented the technology commercialization projects aimed to alleviate poverty by increasing productivity, income, food production and sustainable use of resources through massive technology promotion and commercialization.

The programs specifically promote and commercialize technologies that are economically viable, socially acceptable and environment friendly to accelerate productivity and maximize the utilization of marginalized agricultural farms and resources.

The President said 3 technologies were already successfully promoted and commercialized.

"Our Mushroom Culturing, Peanut Production and Vegetable Production were successfully studied and implemented in different community pilot areas by our agriculture students from CSU- Gonzaga, Lal-lo, Piat and Sanchez Mira, Cagayan that offers agriculture courses," Perez said.

The program develops the entrepreneurial capability of young farmers and agriculture graduates of the university to ensure their meaningful involvement in agriculture and to generate employment.

Perez said the projects were promoted primarily for poor farmers and unemployed individuals.

On their extension programs, Perez said they are responding to the needs of providing technical assistance and relevant skills, knowledge and values to different private and public organizations and agencies through non-formal education.

"We have coordinated and conducted several non-degree trainings to different units, majority of which are community-based as commonly requested by clients and agencies and the biggest number of participants were farmers, unemployed women, government officials, teachers and other professionals," Perez added.

In addition, Perez also enumerated several community involvement activities of faculty, staff and students of the university such the blood letting, health examination services, backyard food production, socio-cultural development and other technical programs. (PIA Cagayan) [top]
