The two sides discussed issues pertaining to collaboration in higher education and research fields.    <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Ambassador said that 1,650 Pakistani students are currently studying in different Korean higher education institutions. <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Chairman said that Pakistan and South Korea have a great potential to strengthen educational cooperation and research collaboration as the two countries enjoy good academic relations. He stressed the need for launching student and faculty exchange programmes among higher education institutions of both the countries. "Joint research initiatives may also be undertaken to further cement academic relations."<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Ambassador highlighted the collaborative endeavours ongoing among Pakistani and Korean higher education institutions. He informed the Chairman that Pakistan Global Institute is being established wherein two disciplines, Information Technology and Business Administration, will initially be started after approval of its law by the Government of Pakistan.   <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">He said that the Korean Government welcomes initiatives meant to strengthen bilateral academic relations between the two countries.<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">===============<br></p>18-04-2019 15:17:10<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-15.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://www.hec.gov.pk/english/news/news/Pages/KoreanAmbassador.aspx
HEC Technology Development FundHEC Technology Development Fund<p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Technology Developed for Application of Bioherbicide to Control Wheat Weeds  </strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Islamabad, April 18, 2019: A cost-effective technology has been developed by University of Agriculture, Faisalabad and Jaffer Agro Services (Private) Limited for application of bioherbicide to control weeds of wheat. This project was approved and undertaken under Technology Development Fund (TDF) of the Higher Education Commission (HEC).   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The project entitled "Development of Bioherbicide Containing Allelopathic Bacteria for Biocontrol of Weeds of Wheat" was awarded to Dr. Zahir Ahmed Zahir and his team at the Institute of Soil and Environmental Sciences, University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) along with Jaffer Agro Services (Private) Limited. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The team has already identified useful strains of rhizobacteria, a root-colonising bacteria suitable to develop a bioherbicide, which may be applied to wheat crop through the technology and a specified process. The team is also fostering to offer it to farmer community in a user-friendly form. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Wheat is Pakistan's major crop and, unfortunately, its annual production is witnessing 24 per cent decrease annually by weeds causing Rs.37.9 billion loss to the country' economy. Various weed control strategies are being employed, including manual weed control, which on one side is time consuming and labour intensive, while on the other side is suitable only for crops grown in rows, besides causing crop injury and elevating the cost due to high energy inputs. Chemical control is time-saving and cost-effective, but it causes harmful environmental impacts, destroying beneficial organisms, pollinators, terrestrial and aquatic life in different ways. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Field trials of the technology conducted in collaboration with the industrial partner have already proven its ability to suppress weed growth and promoted wheat growth by more than 15 per cent. It is estimated to increase 567 tons of wheat crop yield worth Rs.18.44 million annually by applying bioherbicide to only 15 per cent of total area under wheat cultivation. Moreover, along with other multiple benefits to biodiversity, ecosystem and economy of the country, three million rupees can be saved from import of harmful insecticides and pesticides.   </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The project after successful completion may not only save import costs but establish ways to fulfil the objectives of multilateral environmental UN agreements to which Pakistan is signatory and empower the ambition of knowledge economy.     </p><p style="text-align:justify;">TDF is the first initiative of its kind by HEC to harness the expertise of academic scientists for commercially viable prototype and product development with inbuilt mechanism to have industry partner.      <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">===============<br></p>18-04-2019 15:15:01<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-15.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://www.hec.gov.pk/english/news/news/Pages/HEC-TDF.aspx

"The only thing we need to step up is unleash this imagination and creativity of our people, particularly youth."<br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The Chairman emphasized that "technology is an input in the development process, the real source is imagination. And I am pleased to say that HEC is trying to create an environment where our youth is enabled to do so."
