STAFF REPORT IBD: The University of Engineering and Technology (UET) in collaboration with Pakistan Science Foundation (PSF) has recently held a workshop on “Research grant opportunities and proposal writing and funding”.
While addressing the session, University Vice Chancellor, Imtiaz Gilani, said that the universities are not only degree awarding institutions, but also have a lot to deliver for national economic development.
He further said that there was no doubt that academics need to publish research papers in high impact factor journals to enhance career profile but our real life issues are demanding much more than publishing papers.
“Training to write efficient research proposals is a highly technical subject, required to get funding and financial support, he said and adding, ‘federal agencies such as PSF, HEC and ICT RandD fund under the federal government can scale up our research to an adequate level, provided we are properly trained in writing research proposals.
PSF Chairman Dr Manzoor Soomro, briefed the audience about PSF and the goals of its wing, PASTIC.
He encouraged Ph.D faculty members to initiate research proposals and assured PSF support for researchers in cutting edge technology.
“PSF, therefore, encourages you to write to us and get funding for viable solutions of today’s problems,” he remarked.
