State think tank Philippine Institute for Development Studies will launch a PIDS corner at the Sorsogon State College (SSC) in Bicol on December 13, as part of its research dissemination and outreach programs.
The PIDS Corner is the Institute’s knowledge dissemination strategy aimed at making its research outputs more visible and accessible in the provinces. It showcases various studies and publications of PIDS through the years since 1979, which researchers, students, faculty members, and local decisionmakers can access for free.
The launch will be attended by PIDS Vice-President Marife Ballesteros and PIDS Research Information Director Sheila Siar, along with key officials of SSC.
As of September 2016, there are 24 PIDS corners all over the country. The project started in 2006.
