This aims for broadening and enhancing people’s access to knowledge and information, sharing expertise and experience, improving connectivity among educators and researchers, opening up national/regional education and research communities to the international arena, and further developing human resources. PREGINET supports the aim of CONNECT in bridging the gaps of education through facilitating knowledge sharing and collaboration in the country by allowing Filipino researchers and educators to communicate with their peers locally and abroad.

About Us

Over the years, the emergence of information and communications technology has greatly affected the lives of people in the world crossing borders among countries and bringing access closer to one another. In the same token, the birth of Microelectronics has resulted to progress in the development of smaller, lighter and more efficient electronic devices.

This development has a striking resemblance to the birth of one of the research and development institutes of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) – the Advanced Science and Technology Institute (ASTI). It was in 1987 when President Corazon C. Aquino renamed the then National Science and Technology Authority (NSTA) to Department of Science and Technology (DOST). As an offshoot of such sequential events, the DOST-ASTI was created as a research and development institute of the Department by virtue of Executive Order No. 128.
