National Research Program for UniversitiesNational Research Program for Universities<p style="text-align:justify;">Dearth of research literature/equipment is a major impediment to the productivity of many creative and talented faculty members/researchers in all disciplines in universities/degree awarding institutions. In most cases, researchers need substantial financial support for research projects to allow them in their research pursuits.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">In the absence of such facilities researchers, specifically the younger ones, are discouraged and are forced to seek better opportunities in developed countries. To avoid this brain drain, the HEC has initiated a research grant program under which creative researchers are awarded research grants. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">To meet the current challenges of researchers working in local universities/DAIs of Pakistan and to promote the R&D with facilitation, HEC is running the National Research Program for Universities (NRPU) as per researcher's needs/requirements.

In 2005, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) joined with the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) and the Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan to support the joint Pakistan-United States Science and Technology Cooperation Program. Beginning in 2008, the United States Department of State (DoS) joined USAID as a U.S. co-sponsor of the program.  </p><p style="text-align:justify;">This program is implemented by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in the U.S. and by the Higher Education Commission (HEC) in Pakistan. It is intended to increase the strength and breadth of cooperation and linkages between Pakistani scientists and institutions with counterparts in the United States. Within NAS, the Pakistan - U.S. Science and Technology Cooperation Program is administered by the Development, Security, and Cooperation unit in the Policy and Global Affairs Division. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Program Objectives:</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Projects funded under this solicitation should contribute to building research capacity in Pakistan while strengthening U.S. - Pakistan cooperative relationships in one or more of the following ways: </p><ul style="text-align:justify;"><li>Enhancing the ability of the science an<span style="background-color:transparent;color:inherit;">d technology community to spur human and economic development in Pakistan.</span><br></li><li>Improving the quality, relevance, or capacity of education and research at Pakistani institutions of higher education in science and technical fields. <br></li><li>​Improving the capacity of Pakistani research institutions to support industry competitiveness.<br></li></ul>24-11-2016 06:45:10<img alt="" src="/english/PublishingImages/ThematicImages/HEC%20ICON-14.png" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />http://hec.gov.pk/english/services/universities/Pak-Us-stcp
MS M.Phil Review CommitteeMS M.Phil Review Committee<p style="text-align:justify;">The Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), HEC got the mandate to ensure and enhance the quality of higher education by devising viable strategies. Considering the importance of implementing of External Quality Assurance Mechanism; QAA, HEC has established Accreditation Councils for quality assurance of undergraduate qualifications in different disciplines and initiated Ph.D. Program Review Process for quality assurance of Doctoral qualifications. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Due to mushroom growth of Degree Awarding Institutions (DAIs) and increasing demand of higher qualifications, almost all the DAIs and their Constituent & Affiliated Institutions have started MS/ M.Phil. and equivalent programs. Unfortunately, there is no quality assurance mechanism developed for these programs, as a result these qualifications are being offered and awarded without passing through any External Quality Assurance Mechanism. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">In this perspective, the worthy Chairman HEC assigned task to QAA, HEC to devise a process for reviewing the MS/ M.Phil. & Equivalent degree qualifications. As a result, review process is being designed, based upon the successfully implemented Ph.D. Program Review Process. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Higher Education Commission took the initiative of starting MS/MPhil & Equivalent Degree Program Review Process to ensure the quality of MS/MPhil and Equivalent level education. </p><p style="text-align:justify;"> </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The newly designed proforma has been circulated to DAIs that are offering MS/MPhil and Equivalent Programs for compilation of data as per the requirement.
