THE Higher Education Department has handed over all activities of science and technology to the newly-established PNG Research, Science and Technology council secretariat.
The council secretariat was established last year by the Government.
It coincided with the handing over of the Higher Education,
Research, Science and Technology portfolio by Delilah Gore to her successor
The activities were handed over to the Research, Science and
Technology council secretariat chairman and chief executive officer Professor
Gore said the Government had recognised the need to support research and development in science and technology.
“It was only in 2007, under the leadership of the former director-general of the office of
Higher Education, Dr Willam Tagis, that the science and technology initiative
started, to encourage and support research and development in science and
technology in PNG and to progress the establishment of the science and
technology council,” she said.
Tabar said it was one development areas that
had not grown in the past 30 years.
“We would like to see the work of RST
to grow as part of the new Department of Higher Education, Research, Science
and Technology,” he said.
“We like to look after research and development
work coming on in various sectors of the country.”
He said research work
funded by the Government or the private sector must be coordinated so that
there was relevant work researched which should have an ethical relationship
with Papua New Guinea society and cultural standing.
