The Regional Invention Contest and Exhibits (RICE) is a nationwide biennial activity conducted in different regions to recognize Filipino inventions, innovations and researches. It is a national policy to give priority to the invention and its utilization of the country’s productive systems and national life.
Through the Technology Application and Promotion Institute (TAPI), DOST implemented the RICE with the aim of setting a climate that is conducive to invention and innovation and gives encouragement and support to inventors who are creative and resourceful.
DOST also strives to imbue them with a deep sense of nationalism and maximize their capability and productivity through incentives and other forms of assistance. (Engr. Mark T. Galon–DOST X)
