the 6th regional research congress

Presentation of outputs is one important aspect of research undertaking as this brings results closer to target clienteles and other scientific communities. The dissemination of research findings by faculty and students is made possible with the conduct of this 6th Regional Research Congress. Research papers are frequently presented at research congresses to knowledgeable audiences. This makes it possible for researchers to get helpful comments, advice, and criticism from professionals in their field. Feedback aids in enhancing the caliber and rigor of research, helps to spot any methodology faults or gaps, and motivates researchers to polish their work before publishing. Additionally, for faculty and graduate students, presenting research at a congress is seen as a great accomplishment. It improves their reputation and exposure among academics. Researchers can strengthen their presentation skills, get experience in effectively expressing their findings, and increase their chances of being recognized for their contributions by attending or speaking at research congresses. The conduct of this research congress caters researchers not only in the University but also researchers from other SUCs and institutions or agencies who have completed their research papers. This will provide a platform for researchers to share their work, learn from others, and contribute to the advancement of their respective disciplines. This year, URDO collaborates with Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University to widen the participants of the Regional Research Congress and build a strong collaboration in research with them.
