The DOST is in search for the top position of its Industrial Technology Development Institute (DOST-ITDI) following the mandatory retirement of its Director, Dr. Nuna E. Almanzor on September 19, 2014.
The ITDI is among the instrumentalities that laid the groundwork for science and technology in the country way back in 1901. Today, it is one of the DOST’s research and development institutes (RDIs) that undertakes multidisciplinary industrial R&D, technical services, and knowledge translation or technology transfer and commercialization. ITDI harnesses know-how in new technology and product innovation in five major areas, namely: food processing, materials science, chemicals and energy, environment and biotechnology, and packaging technology. With an ISO 9001:2008 certification, it is now a credible and reliable industry and government partner in accelerating growth and development in the country. Most of its testing services and laboratories are also ISO/IEC 17025 – accredited.
