Research, Development and Extension

UPLB implements inter-disciplinary and transdisciplinary programs and collaborative research and development (R&D) activities involving its scientific community and in partnership with local and international higher education institutions, research institutions, non-government agencies, and civil society organizations. 


UPLB houses one of the highest concentrations of scientists and researchers in the Philippines. They provide technical expertise in agriculture, forestry, natural resources management and conservation, biotechnology, environmental management, and related areas to farmers, entrepreneurs, and investors; government, non-government, and civil and people’s organizations; and to R&D agencies and the country’s policy makers.

Public Service

Extension and public service encompass a broader spectrum of activities involving community engagement through voluntarism, training, technical assistance and advisory services, mediated information, technology transfer, scientific presentations, and extension and action programs. Public service exemplifies the culture of gratitude and of selfless service to the country. Public service defines the Iskolar ng Bayan Para sa Bayan.
