On April 6, 2010, immediately after the rites of the 56th Commencement Exercises of Central Mindanao University at the University Convention Center, Dr. William D. Dar, Director General of the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) and Dr. Victor M. Barroso, Officer-in-charge of the university, signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between ICRISAT and CMU.

Such MOU serves as the blueprint for a 5-year partnership in sharing strengths and resources to further build up CMU to become a stronger university. This MOU was spearheaded by Dr. Anthony M. Penaso, Vice-President for Research and Extension, and facilitated by the Linkages and Technology Licensing Office.

Another step towards growth...

This is what we believe the new Linkages and Technology Licensing Office (LTLO) is about. The university is taking another step towards growth and development. It is high time to establish an office that would consolidate all its efforts in partnership establishment. Aside from which, an arm that would actively source out partnerships.

Its dual function is to review technologies generated from CMU researchers that could be potentially licensed. Hence, it is our job to help facilitate these things.

Overall, it is our hope that we serve the university well. So kindly let us know how we may serve you. You can email us ( or just post a comment in this blog.

Cheers all!

Director, LTLO
