These arrangements have been out in place in order to ensure that all major services of the Commission continue to be provided without interruption during the current emergency. <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The research initiative launched today, with the support of the World Bank, is entitled the RAPID Research and Innovation Fund (RRIF) program. It aims to mobilize the research capacities of universities in support of national efforts to address the COVID-19 crisis.  <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Under the initiative, a rapid assessment and review mechanism has been established to analyze research and innovation proposals urgently. Each applicant seeking funding through the RAPID Research and Innovation Fund can propose an idea based on one of the priority themes. The proposals are due by April 3, and funding decisions will be made within the month of April. Funding will be provided to selected research-intensive institutions for analysis of data, testing of specimens, access to facilities or equipment, or development of essential products or services. <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Besides the research initiative, HEC has also been working with universities to minimize the impact of the lockdown of universities on academic activities. To this end, three specialized committees have been established to help arrange IT facilities, software, tech support, and curate substantive online content. The objective is to enable faculty members to (virtually) continue teaching their courses from where they left off at the time of closure of universities. <br></p><p style="text-align:justify;">Individual faculty members will share their course outline/s and required reading materials with their students through online learning management systems.

It will enable a wide range of innovations that are critical for mature digital societies. Advanced wireless services based on 5G will be more complex technologically than previous services and will require substantial new investment. More importantly, they will constitute a new system of value generation. Unleashing this innovative potential will have far-reaching consequences. At the same time, because 5G will also require major investments by mobile operators, incentives for investment and innovation are important.</p><p>The objective of the workshop is to provide a comprehensive and international overview of 5G wireless service. Workshop speaker is a 5G expert from Huawei Headquarters based in Shenzhen China. He will address the engineering, operational, and regulatory aspects of 5G investment and deployment. The workshop will be valuable to anyone who wants to know more about 5G and to understand the current status of 5G service in a global context.<br></p>15-07-2019 10:08:59https://www.hec.gov.pk/english/news/events/Pages/5G-TEDW.aspx37{5571557f-beb9-4225-b81e-28db7c8d584d}https://www.hec.gov.pk
