14 February 2022, CANBERRA – The second episode of the Balik Scientist Program (BSP) webinar series will be launched tomorrow, 15 February 2022, 2:00 PM (AEDT). Episode 2 will focus on Host Institution Selection. The webinar may be viewed at https://tinyurl.com/BSPTalksEpisode2.
BSP is a program of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) of the Philippines that offers a package of benefits to Filipinos, or a foreigner of Filipino descent, who are experts or professionals in the field of science and technology with an outstanding contribution in his or her field of specialization. The BSP allows a Balik Scientist to conduct a work plan, such as lectures and research and development, in coordination with a host institution in the Philippines. In response to the pandemic, the DOST designed remote alternative work arrangements to encourage participation in the program.
Knowledge sharing and strengthening the scientific, technological and human resources of science institutions in the Philippines are particularly relevant today to address current and emerging challenges. Filipino scientists, engineers and innovators in Australia are highly encouraged to participate in the program.
