Secretary Fortunato de la Peña of the Department of Science and Technology recognized the importance of the University of the Philippines (UP) Mindanao’s Niche Center for the Region (NICER) in Research & Development for being one of the few dedicated to health, in remarks made during his visit to DOST-supported projects in UP Mindanao on June 28, 2022. 

 “We have approved 43 of these NICER centers all over the country but not many of them are in health and this is one of those. It is the niche center that is focused on modeling to help in making decision support systems related to health. It is one of those that are considered important,” he said. 

The secretary was referring to UP Mindanao’s Center for Applied Modeling, Data Analytics, and Bioinformatics for Decision Support Systems in Health (AMDABiDSS-Health), a research program focusing on assessing the risk and vulnerability of communities to infectious diseases using mathematical and biological tools, which was awarded as an “Outstanding NICER for Research & Development” in May for its disease surveillance in the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) and the University of the Philippines (UP) Mindanao's UP Growing and Developing Enterprises (UPGRADE) co-organized the nationwide HEI (Higher Education Institution) Readiness for Innovation and Technopreneurship (HEIRIT) 2.0 Kick-off on June 23, 2022, in Davao City, for the second batch of HEIs and their proposed technology business incubators (TBI).UP Mindanao Chancellor Lyre Anni Murao officially opened the Kick-off. “We are forging an agreement to transform our region’s innovation landscape. We are building a promising future for the next generations, a future where innovation flourishes and is supporting local economies…Let us fashion a new breed of resilient entrepreneurs who will champion Filipinnovation,” she said in her message. Ms. Russell Pili, chief of the DOST's Research Information and Technology Transfer Division (RITTD), individually called the HEIs from northern to the southern Philippines, many of which were represented by their heads.A highlight of the Kick-off was the signing of a memorandum of understanding (in photo, left) to deliver the capability-building training for the proposed TBIs. Prof. Nestor Nisperos of De La Salle University's Animo Labs, Chancellor Lyre Murao representing UP Min's UPGRADE, Dr. Luis Sison of the University of the Philippines' UPSCALE, and Andrew Wong, founder of E3 Hubs (Malaysia), signed the memorandum for the training series that began the following day.
The second TBI effort is named "Handholding Starting Incubators from HEIs for Readiness towards Innovation and Technopreneurship -  Preparatory and Skills Acceleration for TBI Managers Optimizing Regional Startup Ecosystem" or HIHEIRIT PA MORE. This aims to create more technology-based businesses or startups in the HEI's communities. It continues the original "Higher Education Institution Readiness for Innovation and Technopreneurship," or HEIRIT program, which was started in the Davao Region by the University of Mindanao, the University of Southeastern Philippines, and UP Mindanao, each of which now has their TBIs and startups, some of which had booths in the exhibit hall. The program is funded by the DOST's Philippine Council for Industry, Energy, and Emerging Technology Research & Development (PCIEERD).
Asst. Prof. Miguel Guillermo (in photo, right), UPGRADE's project lead, said, "The technology business incubator in the universities will be the focal point in building the next generation of entrepreneurs in the regions. If someone with a good idea that solves a problem in the community needs to get some assistance and support for their funding and ideas, they should approach the nearest technology business incubator that is located in a higher education institution."

Magna Cum Laude places 3rd in architecture licensure exam

UP Mindanao 2018 Magna Cum Laude places 3rd in architecture licensure exam; UPMin Department of Architecture has 100% passing rate
- Ar. Julius Benedict A. Brillante (BSA 2018) is among the 31 passers from the Department of Architecture
- With 31 takers passing the exam, UPMin achieved a 100% passing rate for the ALE 2022
An architecture graduate of the University of the Philippines Mindanao, Ar. Julius Benedict A. Brillante is the latest in a growing list of top 10 placers from among UPMin's alumni. 
Brillante scored 81.80% at the ALE. 
The UPMin architecture program graduate was UPMin's magna cum laude in 2018.
Brillante's personal journey to passing the ALE was a challenge of pandemic proportions.  
Brillante tested positive for the dreaded Covid-19 virus four days before the January 2022 ALE, and thus delayed his dreams for a few more months until the June 2022 boards. 
"About six months ago I would have given up on the dream when my family and I tested positive for COVID-19 four days before the January 2022 ALE. It took me a tremendous amount of strength and courage to re-start my reviews for the seventh time. It was not easy, it felt like an endless loop, but what kept me going was the support and encouragement that I have been receiving from everyone-- my family, friends, relatives, teachers, and review-mates," Brillante said. 
At UPMin, Brillante was also a thesis with distinction awardee and a recipient of UPMin's special citations for achievements in culture and the arts. 
He also contributed to UP Mindanao's audio-visual presentation in the Philippine pavilion at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale in Italy.
