The invention contest is aimed at motivating inventors to use their inventive capability by competing for cash awards. The contest serves as the elimination / qualifying round for the National Invention Contest, pursuant to Section 4 of the Republic Act No. 7459 also known as “Inventors and Invention Incentives Act of the Philippines”.
