Pursuance to the mandate of enhancing the research functions of higher education institutions (HEIs) in the Philippines as stipulated in Section 8 of R.A. 7722, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), through its CHED Zonal Research Centers (ZRC) promotes building research capacity of HEI faculty, researchers, and graduate students in their respective zones.

As one ZRC unit, the CHED-Region 1 ZRC based at Mariano Marcos State University-Batac City, gathered all faculty and researchers from various HEIs in Laoag in the afternoon of March 4, 2011, Friday, at the New NCC Auditorium.

Dr. Marilou P. Lucas, the ZRC Director, together with her two Project Technical Staff members, Engr. Brian U. Rasco and Ms. Jhemalyn R. Salvador, oriented the attendees with the rationale, objectives and activities of the Research Capability Building advocacy campaign of the ZRC. Likewise, they brought-up various faculty development study scholarship grants for qualified HEI faculty who are interested to pursue master’s or doctorate studies. Dr. Lucas also emphasized the CHED Research Grant Endorsements program, wherein the HEI faculty, researchers and graduate students can avail of for research funding provided their research proposals, whether individual or collaborative, are highly endorsed by the hosting ZRC.

It is noted that NCC’s CRADS RA, Dr. Emmanuel V. Asuncion, research proposal had already been endorsed by CHED-CAR at Saint Louis University-Baguio City to CHED Central Office. (see related article in the 2nd issue)
