The Research and Development Services organized the CHMSU Pursuits in Research, Innovations, and Meaningful Extension (PRIME) Fiesta for its 2nd year on December 12 to 14, 2023, at the CHMSU Talisay (Main) Campus.
The PRIME_CHMSU Fiesta served as a platform for disseminating research outputs from CHMSU students and faculty members through a poster competition. This event aimed to generate publicity and provide valuable information to engage students, faculty, and the community in various issues and raise awareness of problems in a visual, inclusive, and enjoyable manner.
The opening ceremony and ribbon cutting were led by Andrew Eusebio S. Tan, PhD, Vice President for Research, Extension, and Intellectual Property, and Ricky B. Acanto, PhD, Director for Research and Development Services, at the Administration Building Lobby, Talisay (Main) Campus.
Different campuses of CHMSU showcased and presented their entries, categorized into Thesis, Action Research, Capstone, and Feasibility Study. A panel of judges interacted with the researchers during the presentation, asking questions about their methods and findings.
On December 14, the PRIME_CHMSU Fiesta concluded with a plenary session featuring Dr. Lerma Paris, an expert on research ethics, as the plenary speaker. The culmination awarded the winners of the Poster Making Contest and recognized the achievements of faculty and staff in research, community extension, and intellectual property.
