The Ilocos Fablab is the first in Luzon to offer advanced technology assistance to local MSMEs. It is housed at Philippine Science High School(PSHS)-Ilocos Region Campus providing students access to this high-end laboratory  and to help in research and development requirements of local MSMEs. The Ilocos Fablab is a project of the DTI in partnership with the Department of Science and Technology.

Fablabs began at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to help grassroots communities translate their design ideas into actual products with the help of technology and 24/7 support of a worldwide network of Fablabs. The Fablab, in varying forms,  is present in about 200 locations in over 50 countries.
