SETUP Technology Trainings

The Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program (SETUP) is a wholistic approach in providing assistance for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) by the DOST. SETUP is a nationwide strategy to encourage and assist MSMEs to adopt technological innovations to improve their operations and thus boost their productivity and competitiveness. The program enables firms to address their technical problems through technology transfer and technological interventions to improve productivity through better product quality, human resources development, cost minimization and waste management, and other operation related activities.


The conduct of technology trainings is one of the critical services DOST agencies provide to their customers. In the case of DOST Regional Offices, the trainings are mostly being conducted as part of the assistance given under SETUP. The resource persons are usually subject matter specialists coming not only from the DOST Regional Offices but as well as other DOST agencies, other government agencies, academe and the private sector. On the part of other DOST agencies, training activities are being conducted under their respective programs.
