STAFF REPORT LHR: PSF Chairman Prof. Dr. Ashraf has said that much is needed to promote science in the country, as despite grants, no good research work is being done in universities across Pakistan.


He said that further research, based on available research work of scholars, should be promoted.


He said this at the two-day 4th Invention to Innovation Summit 2015 of the Punjab University Office of Research Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) in collaboration with IRP and PSF has recently been held at Al-Raazi Hall.


Dr Ashraf said the PSF was initiating several programs in the near future for the promotion of science in the country.


Punjab University VC Dr Mujahid Kamran has said that no nation can prosper without creation of new knowledge and for that purpose more PhD teachers are needed so that education can prosper in the country.


He said that no country in the world could prosper without creating new knowledge.


Dr Kamran said that throughout the world 5.9 per cent of the GDP was spent on education, while 2 per cent was being used for the creation of new knowledge.


University of Management and Technology Rector Dr Hassan Sohaib Murad said that the conference would help bridge the gap between academia and industry. He said the Punjab University, being one of the largest university of the country, held a unique place in terms of research and scholarly work.
