Ortega, formerly training officer of the Development Academy of the Philippines and became Development Officer III of TRC and after a series of DOST visitations.


WVSU R&D started to present its research products in many Technology Fora and Scientific Fair sponsored by DOST-TRC in Manila, Pampanga, and Cebu (ca 2009-2012).


The first MOA between WVSU and TRC under Director-General Dennis L. Cunanan was executed in January 2010 in order to make a feasibility study on the establishment of a Green Technology Business Incubation Facility (GTBI) in WVSU.


In March 10, 2011, the GTBI at WVSU was given the lot near Magsaysay Road for the initial ground breaking ceremonies attended by TRC, DTI, DOST, Iloilo City Government and CHED officials.


The series of events paved the way for the initial funding of 17 million pesos in July 2012 from CHED through Chairman Patricia B. Licuanan and Dr. Pablo E Subong, Jr..
