Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher “Toff” de Venecia is hoping th government would fund more research and development projects in state universities and colleges (SUCs).

The politiko focused his interpellation of Commission on Higher Education Chairperson Patricia Licuanan on the said subject matter during the commission’s budget hearing before the House appropriations panel on Thursday, August 10.

“A lot of bright ideas are being generated in our schools; the problem is market linkages to mainstream these initiatives, matching them with potential investors or companies who can make use of these ideas for the greater good,” said De Venecia.

He said he was glad Licuanan had agreed to look into earmarking a specific fund for research and development in SUCs.

“Glad to know that CHED chairperson Patricia Licuanan will be looking into earmarking a specific fund for this, to be supplemented with convergence programs with DOST, Department of Agriculture, and Department of Trade and Industry’s marketing extension services,” said De Venecia.
