About HIC PH 2021:

As one of the main missions of Leave a Nest Philippines is to make science and technology more accessible to more stakeholders, the theme of Hyper-Interdisciplinary Conference in the Philippines 2021 is “Inclusive Disruption in an Island Nation: Disrupting with New Technologies while Maximizing Accessibility”. The conference will focus on how different public and private institutions have been providing support for the different sectors of science and technology during these trying times, and what their plans are as well in the near future. The conference will tackle three main topics that have a lot of pressing issues, but are being given a lot of attention: agriculture, medical technology, and technology services.

Panel Session 1: Empowering the agriculture industry with technology
Abstract:
Asia is an agricultural region, and the Philippines, being an Asian country, is not an exception. However, the Philippines is also blessed with natural diversity and weather that can also cultivate a wide variety of crops. The Philippine government has also realized the importance and role of agriculture in the country, and has also decided to ramp up support for this industry, partially in the form of technologies and systems that will be able to support farmers and agricultural scientists to further develop the agricultural scene in the country. We will be inviting someone from the government, industry, and also a researcher involved in agriculture to discuss what kind of recent initiatives and changes there have been in terms of the agricultural landscape, and whether industry can also provide support for these initiatives as well.

Panel Session 2:Connecting the archipelago for medical care
Abstract:
The Philippines is an archipelago, and because of this certain problems arise including logistics, infrastructure, and even medical care. Because the islands are separated, and because people usually flock to Manila for work, there is an imbalance in the distribution of medical facilities and personnel, with them being concentrated only in bigger cities. Technologies and policies until now have only widened this gap, but with the timely emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, certain procedures, such as telemedicine, have become the norm. This session serves to set an example of how telemedicine-related technologies as a new norm will also solve archipelagic issues at the same time.

Panel Session 3: Providing technology services in the new normal
Abstract:
Deep technology start-ups have started sprouting out here and there in the past few years in the Philippines. One common problem however, is that the startups have had problems with acquiring materials and/or mass producing their technology, or even prototyping, even if their clients are waiting for them. This panel session aims to discuss examples of support for local startups in the aspects of prototyping and manufacturing.
