SVBB vies not only to promote awareness on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), particularly within the academic scientific community, but also to support the growth of science and technology in the country, on the premise that the development of IPR rests on a vibrant scientific and technological environment.
SVBB has joined hands with Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) and Don Bosco Technical College, Mandaluyong City (Don Bosco) in their efforts to provide quality education to Filipino college students in the areas of science and engineering. In 2008, SVBB signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU) for the creation of a scholarship fund to support students enrolled in the School of Science and Engineering who are inclined to pursue law studies and to specialize in intellectual property laws. The following year, SVBB also signed a MOA with Don Bosco to establish a scholarship fund for the same purpose.
SVBB and Don Bosco also put up the Don Bosco Environergy Research and Development Foundation, Inc., to promote research development and foster high-level knowledge and technology for sustainable, natural, renewable energy systems. Last year, SVBB partnered with Innovation and Technology Support Office (ITSO) of the Ateneo initiating the 2016 Ateneo – SVBB IP Awards Project which aims to promote IP rights within the Loyola schools.
