DOST, UNDP to Stage Grassroots Innovation and Circular Economy Expo

The Department of Science and Technology XI (DOST XI) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Philippines will stage a one-day Grassroots Innovation and Circular Economy (GICE) Expo highlighting innovations from the informal sectors complementing initiatives in support of the Circular Economy across the Philippines.

The GICE Expo’s main goal is to recognize the remarkable efforts and achievements of individuals, communities, and organizations who successfully adopted sustainable solutions to address various challenges.

In 2019, the DOST XI launched the Grassroots Innovation for Inclusive Development (GRIND) Program targetted to empower grassroots communities by supporting innovations they made.

Grassroots Innovations (GIs) are home-grown solutions that are grounded on specific context in local communities that solves social, economic, and environmental issues.

Since its implementation, the program has succesfully identified a variety of innovations including heritage food, artisanal crafts, and circular economy initiatives. These innovations are being evaluated for patenting, capacity enhancement, facilities upgrading, prototyping, techno transfer, and commercialization.

The Expo will provide a platform for knowledge exchange, collaboration, and networking among innovation champions, entrepreneurs, policymakers, researchers, community leaders, and grassroots innovators which is expected to strengthen the innovation ecosystem in the country.

DOST XI has partnered with the UNDP Philippines and the Government of Japan who are also spearheading initiatives to enable and accelerate the transition of cities to a circular economy. UNDP also promotes inclusive innovation in the Philippines through policy research and grassroots innovation that are aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The GICE Expo will feature grassroots innovations and circular economy initiatives in the Philippines endorsed by the DOST Regional Offices and will be evaluated based on certain criterias in which three (3) national winners shall be selected per category.

The event will also feature a series keynote speeches with experts coming from Malaysia, India, and the Philippines. The GICE Expo will be  streamed live on the DOST Philippines Facebook page on July 21, 2023.
