QUEZON CITY, Feb. 20 (PIA)—The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) officially launched the country’s first Modular Multi-Industry Innovation Center (MMIC) or “InnoHub sa Pinas” on February 18.
The MMIC or “InnoHub sa Pinas” is part of the Industrial Technology Development Institute (DOST-ITDI)’s technology offerings to Filipino Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) venturing into food, dietary supplements, or personal care items made from by-products like seeds, leaves, and pulp.
These facilities, complete with handling support equipment, can be used by the local industry sectors as a venue for developing new products, product equivalents, product variances, and product reintroductions, as well as, pilot capacity production. The aim is to give back to Filipinos the experience and way of work and life that is made more functional, efficient, and cost-effective because of science.
