CAUAYAN CITY, Isabela, April 6 (PIA) -- Aside from being called a ‘Smart City’, Cauayan is also eyeing to be the Science and Technology Hub of Cagayan Valley for being supportive of the various programs and projects of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).

Sancho Mabborang, DOST regional director, said Cauayan City is home to various DOST-assisted projects such as the first ‘Charm station’ in the region for eBikes and eTrikes, made commercially viable by DOST’s funding support.

Mabborang said there are also established Food Innovation Center and Satellite Standard Testing Laboratory here, aside from the construction of the Business Intelligence Research and Development Center in the city.

“The full support of the city government, including the academe, in the implementation of various DOST-assisted programs and projects are considerations why we are eyeing Cauayan City as Science and Technology hub in the region,” Mabborang said.

Dr. Ricmar Aquino, Isabela State Univerity president, assured his support to the DOST by producing human resources that will augment the future labor force in science and technology related jobs.

“Our ISU-Cauayan City campus is an institution that trains and produces the needed manpower in various science and technology-related employment,” Aquino said. (ALM/MGE – PIA-2/Isabela)
