PSU Vice-President for REIGn Dr. Paulo Cenas, welcomed his fellow government employees from PRMSU- Zambales province and encouraged them to be inspired and motivated by the love for Research. “The successful concepts, best practices, promising accomplishments and the number of accolades we received serve as PSU’s stepping stones to achieve greater heights in Research Development,” Dr. Cenas said. He also opened possible collaboration with PRMSU especially in research works involving the Salt Industry. Questions from the open forum centered on internal and external funding for research centers, impact assessment, strategies for publications, incentives and needs assessment, among others. Joining the Vice President were the Directors from the unit to include: Prof. Francis Albert Argente of the Research and Development Office; Dr. Larry Santos of the Extension Services Office, Dr. Catalina Platon of the Innovation Support Office and Dr. Gilbert Moralista of the Gender and Development Office.
