Dr. Rozzano Locsin as DOST Balik Scientist

Our very own Dr. Rozzano Locsin was recently named as Balik Scientist.

The Balik Scientist Program by the Department of Science and Technology aims to support and strengthen the scientific and technological human resources in the Philippines and reverse the effects of migration of skilled workers by encouraging Filipino scientists and technicians to return to the country and share their expertise and promote scientifice, agro-industrial, and economic development.

A Balik Scientist refers to a science and technology expert who is a Filipino citizen or a foreigner of Filipino descent, residing abroad and contracted by the Government to return and work in the Philippines along his/her field of expertise.

Cheers to Dr. Nino!
