Pakistan Program for Collaborative ResearchPakistan Program for Collaborative Research<p style="text-align:justify;">Pakistan Programme for Collaborative Research allows for university faculty working in Pakistan to go abroad or for researchers from technological advanced countries to come to Pakistan. Preference is given to faculty members visiting foreign institutions that have recognized excellence in the relevant research area. The visits can last between one to four weeks but can be extended to more than four months in case of sabbaticals. The visits are limited to one person (the visiting fellow) going to one institute/department in the host institution. The visiting fellow and a person from the host institution (the host) are co-applicants of the proposal. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The main aim of this funding, which is open to all fields of research, is to initiate or to consolidate international collaborations. To reach this aim, short research activity between the host institution and the visiting fellow should be carried out during the stay. </p><p>Preference will be given to activities that will support:</p><ol style="text-align:justify;"><li>Submission of papers to peer-reviewed scientific journals (co-authored by the visiting fellow and the host). The paper must be an effort of the joint research work being carried out by the applicants. </li><li>Preparation of joint research proposals to be submitted to funding bodies. There must be previous communication with the applicant on the matter.</li><li>Training for lab techniques in Pakistan for postgraduate students. </li><li>Scientific or academic sabbatical in Pakistani universities.</li><li>Curriculum review by the Pakistani universities and/or HEC.</li></ol><p style="text-align:justify;">The aim is to have an exchange of knowledge that is beneficial to both co-applicants. The attendance of congresses, conferences, workshops, seminars or talks is not envisioned in this programme.  </p>13-07-2016 10:01:59<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-12.png" width="300" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://www.hec.gov.pk/english/services/faculty/Pakistan Program for Collaborative Research

Problem Based Applied Interdisciplinary Research ProgrammeProblem Based Applied Interdisciplinary Research Programme<p style="text-align:justify;"></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Higher Education Commission aims "to facilitate institutions of higher learning to serve as engines for socio-economic development of Pakistan" as stated in the mission. In line with the statement, Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan took an initiative to finance proposals of interdisciplinary applied research projects on a specific theme address​ing local issue/problem. In this way, HEC envisages to help the productive minds of Pakistan to impact economy through new and emerging technologies.​</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Interdisciplinarity as a means to address complex problems that cannot be dealt with from a single disciplinary perspective alone. Such problems require people from different disciplinary perspectives to work together, sharing ideas, theories and practice to reach appropriate solutions. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Interdisciplinary research and effective collaboration between people from different disciplines provide substantial benefits to scientists, policy makers and other stakeholders to maximize the potential benefits of interdisciplinarity for future research activity.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">To foster interdisciplinarity and generate space to develop more innovative and high-impact research that delivers solutions to the challenges facing Pakistan,  Higher Education Commission (HEC) initiated an Interdisciplinary research grant program- <strong>Problem Based Applied Interdisciplinary Research Programme (PBAIRP)</strong> that is especially designed to address the contemporary issue of the country and to come up with better and more relevant answers to face present-day problems of the country through interdisciplinary approach. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><img src="/english/services/faculty/PBAIRP/PublishingImages/Call%20for%20Proposals%202018.JPG" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /> </p>20-12-2017 05:05:15<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-15.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://www.hec.gov.pk/english/services/faculty/PBAIRP

Patent Support ProgramPatent Support Program<p style="text-align:justify;">A patent is an exclusive right given to an inventor by a country which helps to exclude others from making, using or selling his or her invention in that country during the life of the patent. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The HEC has developed a programme<strong> </strong>which allows for submission of ideas which describes the potential invention for evaluation for patentability. <span style="color:inherit;background-color:transparent;">In case an invention is determined to be patentable, the inventor will be encouraged to file at Intellectual Property Office Pakistan and will also be supported to file for an international patent.</span></p><p style="text-align:justify;">It is certified that the submission will remain completely confidential and no step will be taken without the consent of the inventors.</p><p><strong>Objectives</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">By securing a patent in a foreign country serves two purposes. First, it allows institution and the country to benefit economically from efforts of inventors/scientists. Second, mankind benefits from the patent if a useful application or a product results from the invention of researchers/scientists/inventors.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">All over the world scientists make significant contributions to economic growth through their inventions and HEC would like Pakistani inventors/scientists to make special efforts to make such contributions.​</p><p><strong>Eligibility Criteria</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Pakistani scientists/researchers from Public/Private Universities/Institutions and Public R&D organizations of Pakistan, who have already filed their patents in the Intellectual Property Organisation (IPO), may apply for the funding of their patent-able research/invention.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><br></p>16-08-2016 04:28:14<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-11.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://www.hec.gov.pk/english/services/faculty/psp
