Brief History

The SEAMEO Regional Center for Educational Innovation and Technology

(SEAMEO INNOTECH) is one of three SEAMEO regional centers hosted by the
Government of the Philippines (GOP).
SEAMEO INNOTECH was established in January 1970 following the SEAMEO
Councils approval of its five-year plan and interim plan of operations. Its
headquarters was first set up at the SEAMEO Secretariat headquarters in
Thailand. It was then moved to Singapore and later on to Vietnam until it was
moved back to Thailand in 1975.

The Center is now located within the campus of the University of the
Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City.
