Tanaw’s book cover is illustrated by a visual artist from Baguio City, Danielle Florendo.
“Tanaw,” is part of the Humans of TAPI campaign which highlights the different movers and shakers and their different perspectives in the innovation ecosystem. The book is a tribute to the Filipino science community as it features the life stories of Filipino inventors who are beneficiaries of DOST-TAPI’s invention-related programs. The storytelling approach adopts a first-person perspective, wherein featured inventors recount life events and personal ideals that propelled their inventions and innovations into reality.
"Imbentor ng Bayan", an audiovisual presentation recognising the eight Filipino inventors featured in the publication, "Tanaw. "
The book also emphasizes the critical role that government agencies, such as DOST-TAPI, play in each of the inventors’ invention journeys. Atty. Decena hopes that through “Tanaw”, DOST TAPI could reach out to more aspiring Filipino inventors and help them gain access to the different invention-related government programs that will help them actualize their innovative ideas.
