Description:
"DOST" redirects here. For the dictionary, see Dictionary of the Older Scottish Tongue.


The Philippines' Department of Science and Technology (), abbreviated as the DOST, is the executive department of the Philippine Government responsible for the coordination of science and technology-related projects in the Philippines and to formulate policies and projects in the fields of science and technology in support of national development.

History

The DOST was formed as the National Science Development Board in 1958, during the administration of Carlos P. Garcia. It was originally mandated to survey the state of science and technology development in the Philippines at the time, to the present Administrations, and it became the National Science and Technology Authority, or NSTA.

In 1987, when Corazon Aquino rose to power and in a shake-up of the executive departments, the NSTA was elevated to cabinet-level status to become the present-day DOST to meet the demands of the burgeoning fields of science and technology and increased calls from various sectors of Philippine society for state intervention in the fields of science and technology for the sake of national development.
