Five (5) Professors from the Cagayan State University participated in the research roundup: a discussion forum hosted by the National Taiwan Ocean University on January 30-31, 2024 at Keelung City, Taiwan. The forum highlights an academic and research discussion of both NTOU and CSU on innovations and developments in fisheries and aqua-culture, technology, and sciences. Serving as visiting professors, Dr. Lenimfa P. Molina and Dr. Quirino G. Pascua engaged with a fruitful discussion on post-harvest technology, fisheries and aquaculture. The Aparri-based faculty members showcased research outputs and practices along the niche program in fisheries and the commitments of the University in food security and conservation. With the Department of Computer Science professors and students, Dr. Billy S. Javier made a discourse about current research and development initiatives with information and communication technologies with its complementation in instruction, and the value of collaboration and innovations in the realization of specific UNDP sustainable development goals. With the Department of Engineering, Engr. Audy R. Quebral and Engr. Theresa R. Dimalanta emphasized in their discourses the current state of engineering research and development projects of the University, its impact in the society and how CSU is geared at sustaining a commitment to improving the lives of people and communities through innovative research and public service, as well as productive industry and community engagements. In addition, the delegation was able to discuss current and future plans with NTOU along a shared goal of realizing sustainable goals with the NTOU’s Center for University Service Research and Sustainable Development. The discussion forum, organized by the National Taiwan Ocean University through its International Affairs Office, is a commitment of both universities at strengthening faculty and student exchanges, conduct of collaborative research and development programmes, and advancing the frontiers of instruction through scholarships, mentorship, research grants, and relevant endeavors. The week-long engagement of the CSU delegation at NTOU highlighted not only the research roundup discussion forum, but an engagement meeting with the university officials and other stakeholders for the enforcement of the academic cooperation and research activities, and benchmarking visits to laboratories and state-of-the-art facilities in other centers and colleges of the partner University.
