About the Conference

The International Conference on Research, Innovation, and Investment (ICRII) is an annual gathering of researchers, innovators, investors, policy-makers and other thought leaders to discuss innovative ideas, current and emerging trends, best practices, and other developments in a particular field and pursue a progressive research and innovation ecosystem. The conference will be staged on May 17-20, 2021 via Zoom.

ICRII features various advances in research and innovation across disciplines. It provides research scientists, industry and government professionals an avenue to discuss and present results of a scientific inquiry, find opportunity to utilize and commercialize research outputs, draw local and international investors of research-based business potentials, and establish research collaboration and linkage relation with institutions or agencies across the globe.

Furthermore, ICRII features scientific lectures on new, relevant topics as well as Investment Forum wherein students and faculty pitch their own startup innovation to potential investors. The forum aims to provide the stakeholders an avenue to exchange ideas and discuss the possibility to further develop startup ideas and make them utilizable and commercializable in either early-stage or fertile ecosystem.

Scholarly papers will be selected and published free of charge in Mindanao Journal of Science and Technology (MJST), a scientific journal published bi-annually by USTP and indexed by Scopus and Clarivate Analytics. Excellent research outputs (one paper from each breakout session) will be selected and accorded during the Awards Ceremony.
