Expected Outputs, Outcomes, and Potential Impact
Expected outputs from the projects to be funded may include any of the following:
The term “OUTPUT” means an activity, effort, and/or associated work product related to project goals and objectives that will be produced or provided over a period of time or by a specified date. Outputs may be quantitative or qualitative but must be measurable during an assistance agreement-funding period.
DOST 6Ps and estimated valuation as guide:
Publication- published aspect of the research, or the whole of it, in a scientific journal or conference proceeding for peer review, or in a popular form. These can be any of the following: ISI or Scopus Indexed Publication, Scopus indexed Conference full paper, Non-indexed publication, Scopus-indexed abstract
Patent/Intellectual Property- proprietary invention or scientific process for potential future profit. Other IPs include Utility Model, Copyright (only for software), discovery of new species, plant variety protection, trademarks, copyrights and industrial designs.
Product/Process- invention with a potential for commercialization.
People Service- people or groups of people, who receive technical knowledge and training. These can be students who were trained or were directly involved in the project or have obtained Master’s or Doctoral degree through the project, and trained personnel.
Places and Partnership- linkage forged because of the study.
Policy- science-based policy crafted and adopted by the government or academe as a result of the study. These can be science-based national laws (executive and legislative), local government unit ordinances, and development plans.
Outcomes and Impact. Outcomes and impacts are results beyond 6Ps, GAD outputs and S&T dissemination but still traceable or attributable to the project. These can be determined through an assessment three (3) to five (5) years after the project completion.
Examples of outcomes include:
Technology adoption are accelerated and sustained;
Improved productivity, better institutional services;
Ensured resiliency to disaster risks and climate change, and;
More responsive environmental processes.
Impacts are measured in the following areas:
Economic Growth/Industry Competitiveness;
Improved Environmental Condition;
