Technological advancements offer a wide range of opportunities in shaping the country’s development; thus, digital transformation or adoption of digital technology has to be implemented to meet the changing needs and demands across sectors, including R&D.

On October 19, the NRCP Visayas Regional Cluster (NRCP VRC) will hold its Annual Scientific Conference and 19th Membership Assembly with the theme: Digital transformation in Research: Powers and Perils at the Cebu Technological University – Danao Campus on a Hybrid-Flexible (HyFlex) Arrangement.

This annual convention will serve as an avenue for the interaction and discussion of more than 600 NRCP VRC members on how digital transformation can enhance their research frameworks and practices.  Their visions on the use of digital technology in R&D will be useful in crafting policies and guidelines for the Visayas Region.
