As part of the course requirements in WD231 (Gender Responsive Planning and Administration) under Ms. Titan Barrameda, the group (composed of Cindy Cruz, Queen Olivar, and Jeng Tetangco) carried out an organizational gender analysis of an S&T organization. The organization chosen for the study is the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI). ASTI is an R&D institute under the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) that is mandated to undertake R&D in the advanced fields of information and communications technology (ICT) and Microelectronics.

Organizational Gender Analysis of the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI)

I.    The Philippine Science and Technology Framework

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is primarily tasked to develop the Philippine Science and Technology Framework. The National Science and Technology Plan 2002 – 2020 (NSTP 2020) provides the policy framework and outlines the direction of the country’s S&T development. The NSTP 2020 is a result of extensive nationwide consultation with business and industry leaders, S&T experts and other government departments and agencies, and other stakeholders. This indicative plan supports the visions and goals of the Medium Term Philippine Development Plan (MTPDP) 2004 – 2010.

In its vision for Philippine S&T, the NSTP does not explicitly state the role of women in the national S&T development.

I.    Project Background

1.    Rationale

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) is implementing a Technology Innovation for Commercialization (TECHNICOM) Program designed as a technology-transfer program. The program aims to fast track the commercialization of research and development (R&D) breakthroughs with excellent market potentials. It provides funds to carry out any of the following technology-transfer support activities: commercial prototype development; business plan/feasibility study preparation; intellectual property rights protection; technology valuation, negotiation and licensing; and semi-commercial production.

TECHNICOM has provided funding support for the preparation of a technology commercialization/business plan for the Tabletop Breast Milk Pasteurizer Continue reading
