The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) continuously provides assistance to relevant R&D endeavors to push the development of local and appropriate technologies with socio-economic benefits for the people. This is to ensure that new knowledge and information are generated to increase productivity, and ensure quality products and processes in the country.

For the CY 2022 Call for Proposals, the department transitioned to online submission through the DOST Project Management Information System (DPMIS).

The statistics of the recently concluded call for Health, Basic Research, CRADLE and NICER last April 30, 2020 revealed that majority of the proposals were received on the last week of the submission. This can be attributed to the number of late April registrations in the system.
