The National Research Council of the Philippines (NRCP) had bigger chances at recruiting more members from the CTU community on Tuesday, July 3, following the presentations of the National Integrated Basic Research Agenda (NIBRA) and DOST’s R&D Leadership Program (RDLead). 

Membership orientation was capitalized in the quest for a solid research agenda in the university. Invited to speak on the matter was NRCP Executive Director Marieta Bañez Sumagaysay and members Melinda L. Perez  and Dr. Ruby Raterta.

CTU President Rosein A. Ancheta Jr. stresses on the survival of the university through research.

There were 182 registered participants from 23 campuses (main, satellite and extension) and 37 associate membership applications  initially approved. Dr. Adrian Ybanez’s efforts of materializing the activity was a deliberate response to the growing demand for  innovation as NCRP membership entitles one to a research grant.  ICPA
