Participants of the program Enhancing Development of Global Entrepreneur (EDGE) under the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) visited BIOTECH UPLB last 10 September 2015. The EDGE program aims to develop talents who can promote company business developments and business startups based on research results, from resolution of issues discovered personally, or in collaboration. The EDGE program is being implemented with over 20 universities within Japan in collaboration with venture capitalist, manufacturing industries, distribution industries, think-tanks, and top overseas agencies.

Through the coordination of Dr. Kiyoshi Kondo, the participants of the EDGE program met with the BIOTECH Executive Committee (BEC) and exchanged ideas regarding the different applications on biotechnology in agriculture, energy, health and environment.
