SIYENSIYA at TEKNOLOHIYA, RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT

1. Panawagan sa mas malaking badyet para sa R&D:

“I have repeatedly raised the issue of the minuscule budgetary allocation for research and development (R&D) in the national budget year in, year out – an average of, lo and behold, 0.4% of the annual budget from 2016 to 2020, including 0.39% for 2020. For the same five-year period, the DOST’s average budget is only P20 billion or a meager 0.56% against the trillions of pesos that we pass every year as our national budget. This, even as I consistently amended the budget measure by augmenting the budgets of the Department of Science and Technology and its programs. For 2020, I sought a P50M increase for NICER, P100M increase for STAMINA4Space and a P100M increase for CRADLE; as well as P537.991M for UPLB’s National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.”

“Had our homegrown scientists been given the much-needed additional budgetary support for R&D, who knows how much more they can contribute? As it is, by not supporting them adequately, we’re wasting their talents and opportunities to help our nation.”

2. Sa halip na umasa sa ‘Google shopping,’ kailangan nating humubog at magkaroon ng sariling R&D:

“Kung kailangan ng kagamitan, ang R&D natin Google. Noong Chief PNP ako meron tayong directorate for R&D tapos pag may kailangan Google kayo para mag-shopping.”

“Di ba dapat harness tayo sariling kakayahan para export ang invention natin? Ang scientist natin nasa ibang bansa kasi walang suporta ang gobyerno.”

3. Dagdag na badyet para sa R&D:

* Suporta sa University of the Philippines-Los Baños-National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (BIOTECH) (P537,991,000). Ang Biotech ay nagiging isa nang pangunahing research and development (R&D) institution para sa basic and applied research tungkol sa molecular biology at biotechnology. Dahil tayo ay nasa panahon ng Artificial Intelligence and Biotechnology, kailangang masuportahan ang patuloy na pagtuklas tungo sa mas modernong operasyon ng BIOTECH sa ilalim ng mandato nito.

Bagama’t nakapaloob sa University of the Philippines-Los Baños-National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (BIOTECH) ang P537 milyon na amendments ni Senador Lacson, napasama pa ito sa mga natukoy na “For Later Release” at nailaan sa COVID-19 response kaya P75 milyon ang naisama sa badyet para sa nabanggit na programa sa taong 2021.
