MSU-IIT has been a partner of DOST-ASTI’s PREGINET since 2017 through the PCARI Research and Instructional Infrastructure for Mentoring and Collaboration (PRIME) Project, and after the set of presentations has expressed great interest in collaboration with other services to streamline their processes as well as gain access to activities related to space, data science, information and communications technology, and disaster risk reduction management.
