by Carla Bianca Victorio



The Philippine-American Academy of Science and Engineering (PAASE) held its 29th Annual PAASE Meeting and Symposium (29APAMS) last July 13-15 2009 with the theme “Linking Science and Engineering to Development.” The event, attended by over 150 Filipino scientists and engineers and a large number of students from across the country, was hosted by the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) in celebration of its 150th year of foundation. 29APAMS consisted of several plenary and parallel sessions on a wide range of topics in science, engineering and technology (S,E&T) and became an opportunity for experts to update the audience on recent advances in their fields and for young students to interact with these seasoned scientists and engineers. Aside from the technical sessions, other highlights of 29APAMS were panel discussions and updates on PAASE’s science advocacies and on opportunities for commercialization of S,E&T-based research endeavors.
