University Industry Technological Support ProgramUniversity Industry Technological Support Program<p style="text-align:justify;">The University Industry Technology Support Program (UITSP) of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) is an important step towards fostering a high-level of tangible cooperation between academia and industry. This cooperation is to capitalize on emerging international demands for products and processes in discrete and continuous manufacturing that shall contribute to the national economy. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">This program is focused on the industrial sectors where the country is already a major contributor to world trade. It focuses on harnessing the potential of highly competitive sectors for international trade which needs development both for local and international consumption. The focused sector wise identification of products and processes in discrete and continuous, as well as import and export, trends is available from the public domain local and international statistical data.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The UITSP proposes that researchers, preferably with PhD degrees and affiliation with international professional bodies, collaborate with the local industry involved in discrete and continuous manufacturing for tangible results in terms of improvement of product and processes leading to decreased import of raw material and increased export of the finished product and processes. The products and processes needing improvement should ideally be in priority areas relevant to national needs for socio-economic development of the country.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The UITSP is awarded on competitive merit by the HEC for high-level and promising industrial research projects of direct relevance to current needs of the industry to be carried out in Pakistan by creative scientists of public-sector universities and degree-awarding institutions in collaboration with professionals from the local industry. The purpose of these grants is to promote scientific research in applied sciences in the country and to strengthen the indigenous capacity for industrial competition in the world market.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The research grant will be provided for a maximum period of two years with a budget of up to Rs. 6 million.</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><strong>Objectives</strong></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The increased globalization of trade, formulation of policies and procedures to streamline the globalization trend and application of international standards by national, international and professional organizations has increased the trade competitiveness and thus has opened new avenues for worldwide industrial sector.

Thematic Research Grants ProgramThematic Research Grants Program<div style="text-align:justify;"><p style="text-align:justify;">Higher education sector of Pakistan has been playing an important role in improving the quality of teaching and developing research culture through innovative ways. Realizing the need of ensuring the concept of knowledge economy in true sense it initiated different incentivized programs in both the public and private sector universities/institutions to motivate and encourage the potential researchers in almost all disciplines. However, besides its focus on promoting research culture in sciences it also concentrated on promoting research culture in social sciences. It, hence, intends to encourage the creative and talented faculty members to probe into those areas (see the different thematic areas in attachment) that check the growth, development and progress of Pakistan. Such encouragement not only helps in addressing the key issues paralyzing the status of Pakistan but also unearthing those possible case studies and details which can be translated into national policies and goals achievements.

HEC Research Travel GrantHEC Research Travel Grant<p style="text-align:justify;">Academic events are significant for professional development of researchers and scholars. They serve as a source for guidance, exposure, knowledge sharing, developing linkages, and problem solving. Academic Conferences, Seminars and Symposia provide opportunities for academicians to help understand the latest developments in their field and validate research findings, while creating opportunities for future academic collaborations.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Such events are the cornerstone of the academic environment. To cultivate this environment, the Higher Education Commission has set up a special Research Travel Grant Fund for University faculty, PhD scholars, and MS students at Pakistani Universities. Under this program, an academician or student selected to present research work at a national or international academic event is eligible to get funding from his/her academic institution and the academic institute will ultimately seek funding from HEC by applying for reimbursement</p><p style="text-align:justify;"><span class="ms-rteFontSize-2 ms-rteThemeForeColor-5-0"><strong><span aria-hidden="true"></span>Note: </strong><span style="background-color:transparent;"><strong>In order to avail </strong></span><span style="background-color:transparent;"><strong>Travel Grant</strong></span><span style="background-color:transparent;"><strong>, applicants may apply to his/her respective University (public sector and eligible private sector) and the University will ultimately seek funding from HEC by applying for reimbursement.
