PCC researchers at PCC at Central Luzon State University (CLSU) recently honed their skills on effective proposal writing during a Training Workshop on R&D Formulation and Proposal Writing at the said PCC station.
PCC at CLSU Center director Dr. Daniel Aquino said the workshop is meant to challenge researchers to write compelling research proposals for funding.
“Our emphasis now is on writing and conducting researches that are more beneficial to farmers,” Dr. Aquino said.
The four-day workshop, which started last June 21, tapped resource speakers from the Research, Extension, and Training (RET) Office of CLSU, which included vice president for RET Dr. Fe Porciuncula, vice president for Business Affairs Dr. Edgar Orden, and research office director Dr. Maria Excelsis Orden.
PCC research for development national coordinator Dr. Eric Palacpac said the training aimed to inspire PCC at CLSU staff to work hard and yet enjoy doing researches.
“Let’s put enthusiasm in the way we perform our technical capabilities such as in writing research proposals to meet our R4D agenda. Inspiration can be translated to meaningful researches,” Dr. Palacpac said.
During the writeshop, participants reviewed, critiqued and rewrote the proposals based on the pointers that they learned from the series of discussion.
Potential research papers in the area of forage and pasture, carabao-based enterprise, and product development were identified after the lectures and draft proposals were evaluated on the final day. The workshop’s outputs are expected to be finalized and submitted to the national R4D coordinator office for screening.
