The Unified R&D Agenda (URDA) is a comprehensive listing of the research goals, thrusts, themes and priorities which serve as a guide in proposing and implementing R&D activities in the University.  It is anchored on the provincial, regional and national R&D agenda and on the global goals for sustainable development.  It is drafted in a highly participatory process taking into consideration the expertise and resources of the University, and the pressing problems and issues besetting the immediate service area.  The University partners and stakeholders were also consulted in crafting of these documents through a survey facilitated by the Research and Development Services Unit.


For 2020-2024, the major issues and problems that the University aims to address are the following:  poverty, malnutrition, insurgency, low agricultural productivity, natural disasters, need for accessible and inclusive quality education, and degradation of environments (terrestrial and aquatic). 


   A total of 40 extension papers and 17 externally funded research papers were presented during the 2022 UEP Research, Extension, and Innovation Scientific Conference. On the first day of the conference, lectures and workshops were done for IP Awareness and Patent Search and Information.

   Research Director Rogelio Banagbanag in his closing remarks reminded the RDE community that the University grants Incentives for Resource Generation (IRG) to researchers who generated funding from external funding agencies. The incentives can be claimed by the Program or project Leader only once for the entire duration of an externally funded R & D Program or Project. If the project generated an amount of Php1.0 million to Php2.0 million, the project leader will receive Php10,000.00 incentives. For amounts generated from Php2.1 million to Php4.0 million and above Php4.0 million will receive an amount of, Php15,000.00 and Php20,000.00, respectively. Once again, congratulations to our active extensionists and researchers!
