The research projects were presented to track their progress and accomplishments. This also served as a venue to raise questions, suggestions and concerns to further enhance and update university transactions. Moreover, the TTBDO also encouraged our researchers to have their technology protected through the application of intellectual property rights and utility models. 

This was the first time that the OVCRE merged the monitoring and evaluation of in-house and externally-funded projects. This event provided an opportunity for researchers and staff to improve project implementation and university transactions.
