    At the last PAASE APAMS meeting held in April 2018 at the University of Arizona, PAASE members generated many progressive ideas on how to use S&T and innovation to drive Philippine socio-economic development and improve the quality of life of Filipinos. In the spirit of constructive volunteerism, PAASE hopes to contribute to the implementation of the Philippine Development Plan 2017-2022, an inter-agency-prepared plan document led by NEDA. A follow-up PAASE meeting will be held on October 24 to 28, 2018 to continue the discussions and consultations, to produce concrete resolutions, position papers and action plans to create S&T and innovation ecosystems. Participants are invited to submit an abstract and poster for the conference. Local researchers, their industry partners and foreign collaborators are welcome to attend the meeting proper, and present their research programs in exhibit booths.
