Education and Intellectual Property
SVBB vies not only to promote awareness on IPR, particularly within the academic scientific community, but also to support the growth of science and technology in the country, on the premise that the development of IPR rests on a vibrant scientific and technological environment.
SVBB is keen with the recent issuance of the Rules of Procedure on Environmental Cases by the Supreme Court which should speed up the determination of environmental cases, with the creation of special environmental courts and special writs like Writ of Kalikasan and Writ of Continuing Mandamus, as well as the Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation (SLAPP).
Through the years, SVBB continues to champion seafarers’ rights as it cooperates with various stakeholders in ensuring better protection and more benefits for the Filipino seafarers.
We would love to hear from you.
