DLSU Research Congress 2017
De La Salle University, Manila, Philippines

Theme: The ASEAN ECOSYSTEM @ 50: Change for a more inclusive growth

The Research Congress is an annual event of De La Salle University where researchers, educators and students share their research outputs. It is a venue for discussion and exchange of ideas. It is where collaborative research partnerships are forged.


Fifty years after the establishment of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), member nations saw changes and improvement in the lives of their citizens. The march towards sustainable development and inclusive growth continues to take place. The ASEAN communities must strive to sustain scientific, socio-cultural, technological, economic, and political growth driven by innovation and efficiency, accompanied by lasting peace, security, stability, as well as shared prosperity and social progress.

The Research Congress is open to the public and is free of charge. Participants are requested to pre-register online.
