CVISNET joins DOST 7 CEST’s Strategic Planning and Road Mapping Activity

Hosted by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Region 7, CVISNET joined the Strategic Planning and Road Mapping Activity exhibit from February 28 to March 1, 2024, at the Golden Prince Hotel, Cebu City. The event aims to identify community needs, efficiently allocate resources, and promote collaboration among partner agencies.

The Community Empowerment through Science and Technology (CEST) program, a flagship of the DOST, provides a comprehensive package of Science, Technology, and Innovation (STI) interventions to empower the poorest and most marginalized communities. Implementation involves the provision and transfer of technology-based development projects to identified communities, focusing on areas such as education, health and nutrition, water and sanitation, disaster risk reduction, and community-based enterprise development initiatives.

CVISNET joined the exhibit featuring its Barangay e-Systems and Tools (BeST) technology. It is a project initiated to provide the community with a complete easy solution for planning, monitoring, and document generation for the barangay, including a computerized record-keeping system that manages the residents' information, judicial information, and permit generation in the barangay. BeST allows integration of the barangay data accessible at the municipal level.

It is an honor and a privilege for CVISNET to contribute to initiatives that bridge the digital divide and empower communities through Science and Technology.
