Baseline Research of the 10-year National Space Science and Technology Applications (SSTA) Masterplan

In 2012 and through the DOST-PCIEERD, the Committee on Space Technology Applications (COSTA) foresaw the need to develop a 10-Year National STA Masterplan for the Philippines. The Space Science and Technology Applications (SSTA) Baseline Research Project was then conceived in 2013 in order to incorporate science and development policy thrusts and priorities into the master planning process. This one-year SSTA Baseline Research identified and established the following:

  • A common science and technology framework
  • Key institutional players/ stakeholders
  • Organizational gaps and needs
  • Indicators/ potential metrics
  • Ways forward
  • Potential contributions of SSTA to the achievement of Philippine development goals
  • Benefits arising from regional and international collaboration
