National Research Council of the Philippines

The National Research Council of the Philippines was created to promote the advancement of science through researches that will build up a body of Filipino men and women devoted to scientific research.  During the 1992 reorganization under Executive Order No. 784, it was designated as a Sectoral Council engaged in supporting fundamental research attached to the National Science  and Technology Authority for policy and program coordination.  Further, it was reorganized under Executive Order No. 128 and was stripped of its functions as a Sectoral Council and was renamed Philippine National Science Society attached to the Department of Science and Technology.

In December 1990, Republic Act No. 6974 restored the name of the agency to the National Research Council of the Philippines.  It provides assistance for the development of research capabilities in various fields of interdisciplinary and humanistic sciences and their related applications.  The Council envisioned the advancement of knowledge frontiers, concepts, design frameworks and technologies toward national development and progress.
