BSU conducts In-House Review on new normal setting; honoraria for University researchers possible

Abiding in health protocols amidst the CoVID-19 Pandemic, the Internet was considered a big help in the success of the University Annual In-house Review held at the Research and Extension Complex on September 16,17 and 18, 2020.

“Nakita ko na ang ibang mga evaluators from across the miles really tried to join us via zoom and indeed we can expand space and time even with this pandemic because it is mediated by technology,said Dr. Ruth S. Batani, VP for Research and Extension.

Dr. Danny B. Bose, BSU Officer-In-Charge highlighted during the awarding ceremony that the University is trying its best to give credit to researchers’ efforts in conducting studies.

“If I may give you some good news based on the previous Administrative Council meeting …. we have already discussed the incentives sa mga Science and Technology Researchers nang sa ganun ay mabigyan naman sila ng morale booster or inspiration para maipagpatuloy nila ang pag conduct ng research,”  he said.

Dr. Bose further articulated that research is the backbone of any state university thus they are trying to convince the Board of Regents to approve what is due for University researchers.

Sana hindi kayo maubusan ng pasensya, sana hindi bumaba ang inyong morale. Ipagpatuloy ninyo ang pag-conduct ng relevant researches nang sa ganun ay mapaganda pa ang performance ng ating University.” Dr. Bose expressed.

As a rejoinder, Dr. John James F. Malamug, VP for Admin and Finance, said that by any chance this year the honoraria would be given coming from the General Appropriations Act or GAA.

“Within this year the accreditation of S&T researchers is already dedicated to the head of the agency which in our case is the University President…may chance na beginning this year makukuha ninyo iyong dapat namang para sa inyo (referring to the honoraria) though we have to be cautious, huwag sana tayong magmadali…let’s study it carefully,” said Dr. Malamug.

A total of 94 researches has been presented in the Annual In-house Review this year. Out of these, 46 are completed researches and 48 are ongoing studies. Presentations were done through Google Classroom, Zoom and in person.//DSEmok
