Knowledge Exchange InitiativesKnowledge Exchange Initiatives<p style="text-align:justify;">Universities can play a leading role in stimulating social and economic growth and contributing to new innovations in science and technology. Going beyond their core mission of teaching and research, universities can collaborate with businesses and civil society to create knowledge exchange initiatives. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">By opening communication and facilitating an exchange of ideas between different communities and institutions, knowledge exchange allows research to influence policy formulation and for academics to share ideas with business and government.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The HEC envisions a knowledge exchange initiative that involves a wide range of exchange mechanisms linking academics from all disciplines. Through this process, the HEC is attempting to create a free flow of knowledge across and within different sectors. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The knowledge exchange initiative involves the formulation of the first strategic plan of knowledge exchange for higher education, training for knowledge exchange teams, and for office of research and innovation. Additionally, it allows the HEC to tie university funding to achievements in the field of community, society and business interactions.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><br></p><p><strong>Collaboration with British Council on Knowledge Exchange</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Higher Education Commission and the British Council have agreed to work for the promotion of knowledge Exchange.

PhD Review CommitteePhD Review Committee<span lang="X-NONE">Higher Education plays a vital role in the socio economic development of the country and HEC considers the capacity building of the Degree Awarding Institutions as pivotal for the purpose. Hence, quality of PhD researchers/educators produced is the backbone for the development of Quality Education in the institutions of Higher Learning. To ensure the quality of doctorate level education, HEC took the initiative of starting PhD Progress Review Process. The PhD Review Committee has so far completed three cycles to assess the programs at PhD level in 2005, 2007 and 2012 throughout the institutions of the country.</span> <span lang="X-NONE"> </span><br><br><span lang="X-NONE">Considering the importance of external quality assurance mechanism for Ph.D. Programs, the Quality Assurance Agency, HEC in consultation with existing Ph.D. Review Committee members revised the entire review process.</span><br><span lang="X-NONE"></span><br><span lang="X-NONE">The fourth cycle of the Ph.D. Program Review visits is in process. The newly designed proforma (checklist) are circulated, before the actual visit of the review committee to all the DAIs that are offering Ph.D. Programs for gathering data pertaining to Ph.D. Scholars. The Review process of Ph.D. program will be conducted on the basis of data provided by the DAIs.</span><br><br>The Competent Authority constitutes a PhD Review Committee comprising of eminent educationists to determine the implementation status of the laid down criteria. It was decided that assessment of MPhil/ PhD programs on a regular basis be continued in order to ensure the quality of programs. For this purpose base line data collection and review visits of universities are undertaken. In order to accelerate the review process, four review committees are functioning. These have been mandated by the Competent Authority HEC to conduct review of higher degree programs of both public and private sector universities in the regions of (1) KPK & Balochistan, (2)Islamabad and Azad Jammu Kashmir and Gilgit  (3) Punjab  and (4) Sindh. <br><br><dl><dd><h4><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span><span>Ph.D. Review Committee

Business Incubation Centers in Public Sector UniversitiesBusiness Incubation Centers in Public Sector Universities<p>​<strong>BUSINESS INCUBATION CENTRES</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The HEC supports the establishment of Business Incubation Centre's (BIC) in public sector universities to provide basic infrastructure and allied facilities for researchers and young entrepreneurs who are interested in developing early-stage business ventures. A business incubator's main goal is to produce successful firms that will leave the program financially viable and freestanding. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Business Incubators are companies which support new and startup companies in their initial development stage by providing an array of targeted resources and services. These services are developed or arranged by the business incubator and offered by it directly or through its network of contacts. Graduates of the business incubator programme create jobs, revitalize neighborhoods, commercialize new technologies, and strengthen local and national economies. Instead of creating job seekers we are turning new graduates into job providers. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">So far Twenty Business Incubation Centers have been established at National University of Science and Technology; COMSATS Institute of Information Technology; University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar; University of Agriculture, Faisalabad; University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Lahore; Sukkur Institute of Business Administration; Quaid-e-Azam University; Institute of Space Technology, Islamabad; Balochistan University of Information Technology, Engineering, and Management Sciences, Quetta; University of Malakand; Gomal University of D.

Social Integration Outreach ProgramSocial Integration Outreach Program<p><span>Higher Education Commission since its inception provides guidance and support to the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) regarding their mission and goals. Which keeps on changing to accommodate global challenges, arises in the role of HEIs. As HEIs previously kept their focus on providing knowledge and education only to those who enters in their premises to acquire learning. HEIs role is fast changing from access to quality and from quality to relevance and now according to new role, HEIs/Universities are pushed to impact community and economy as to pay back to their country.</span></p><p><span></span> </p><p class="ms-rteCustom-justifytext"><span>This specific program is designed to push universities/HEIs to integrate their research and teaching activities to address local issues, by community involvement, to provide on ground solutions.

Offices of Research, Innovation and CommercializationOffices of Research, Innovation and Commercialization<p style="text-align:justify;">​HEC aims at always motivating and facilitating the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to make research a top priority for a sustainable economic growth and future knowledge economy. For this purpose, a centre is being established in universities to serve as a pivotal point, encompassing all the research activities - from development of research proposal to the commercialization of research products - under a single umbrella.
