Exhibit Proposal Form (pdf/84kb)

De La Salle University envisions itself to be a “leading learner-centered and research university… in the service of Church and society.” This vision guides the institution’s academic curricula, its approach to social engagement, and its research priorities. De La Salle University therefore celebrates the social impact of the innovations developed by the members of its community, as it further encourages the diffusion of knowledge, technology, and innovation for public good.

The 6th DLSU Innovation and Technology Fair takes the theme “Green Technologies → Social Impact”, highlighting the importance of the economic and social impact of sustainable innovations generated from research and creative activity. The event further has the following sub-themes:

  1. The social impact of the inventive and creative activities of universities, industry, and government

  2. The social impact of emerging technology in the age of Industry 4.0

  3. Creative arts and technology towards social innovation

  4. Social entrepreneurship

  5. Innovation-conscious policy-making

We invite researchers, inventors, creators, and innovators to submit proposals for exhibit at the event. The innovations for exhibit must be relevant to the event theme and/or any of the sub-themes.

Interested applicants are invited to submit an exhibit proposal form, accessible at the link above, to ditechfair@dlsu.edu.ph. One exhibit proposal form should be submitted per innovation; however, proponents may submit multiple exhibit proposal forms. Deadline of exhibit proposal form submissions is 1 October 2018.

The DITECH Fair 2018 Organizing Team evaluates proposals based on the relevance of the innovation to the theme and/or sub-themes.

The DITECH Fair Organizing Committee will inform exhibit proponents of the status of their applications. Successful applicants will receive exhibitor guidelines from the Organizing Committee.

A Best Exhibit award will be given to exhibit proponents whose projects best meet the selection criteria. A People’s Choice award is awarded to exhibit proponents whose projects are voted most popular by DITECH Fair 2018 participants.
