This year another milestone as Tryk ni Juan is launched. The Industrial Technology Development Institute (ITDI), a multi-disciplinary Research and Development Institution (RDI) under the Department of Science and Techonolgy (DOST) celebrates it 115th founding anniversary. From its humble beginnings in 1901, it has grown into a globally competitive institution providing R&D and technical services to micro, small, and medium scale (MSMEs) industries, government, private sector, and academe. This year another milestone as Tryk ni Juan is launched. The ITDI Chorale has chosen a most fitting song for the gathering’s invocation, The Power of Love, a song that express deep gratitude to the power that brought about 115 years pump priming S&T, generating technologies that provide solutions to the needs of its various stakeholders thru untiring experiments, research and development.
