Center for University Research calls for Research Project and Implementation Incentive (RPII) Submissions 2024

📚🔬 Calling All UMak Faculty and Administrative Staff!

We’re thrilled to introduce a unique opportunity for you to turn your ideas into impactful projects. Whether you’re an academic seeking to push the boundaries of knowledge or an administrative genius with practical solutions, this is your chance to shine! 💡

The Center for University Research (CUR) recognizes its vision “contributes to the continual enrichment of its body of knowledge and/or the development of the City Government of Makati as the premier city of the country”; its function to “monitor the implementation of relevant research policies, guidelines, and mechanisms”; and its goal to “implement research work that can benefit both the University and the City Government of Makati”.

RPII is a program of the University, coursed through the CUR for faculty and admin staff who have the interest and commitment to pursue research to be implemented in their chosen organization, center, office, or agency. It is designed for researches to be incentivized in consideration of the implementation phase.
