The Eastern Visayas Consortium for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research and Development convened the Research, Development and Extension faculty and administrators in the back-to-back webinars on October 21-22, 2021 via zoom.

The Senior Economic Development Specialist of the National Economic and Development Authority VIII, Engr. Prisco Boco III tackled the topic on “Project Monitoring and Evaluation” while the Project Manager of PCIEERD Impact Assessment of Projects, Mr. Ulysses M. Palmones delivered the lecture on “Impact Assessment of Funded Researches”.

The presentation of Dr. Karina Milagros R. Cui-Lim of her funded project made the discussion on Impact Assessment of Funded Researches more substantive and engaging.

The webinars served as the avenue for the members of the consortium to be oriented on how to conduct project monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment; have a full grasp of the issues and concerns on project monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment; and to strengthen consortium’s capability on project monitoring, evaluation and impact assessment.

A total of 148 RDE Faculty and Administrators from Eastern Visayas State University, Leyte Normal University, Samar State University, Southern Leyte State University, Visayas State University, Northwest Samar State University, University of Eastern Philippines, Eastern Samar State University, Palompon Institute of Technology, and Biliran Province State University attended the webinars.

The webinars on “Project Monitoring and Evaluation” and “Impact Assessment of Funded Researches” were the brain-child of Dr. Ramil T. Uy, EVCIEERD consortium coordinator, who observed the neglect of these aspects in consortium’s funded researches.

The Chair of the Technical Working Group and the VP-RDE of Eastern Visayas State University, Dr. Ma. Cristina I. Caintic corroborated with the observation and added that these activities are also being looked into in the AACCUP accreditation of universities.
