STAFF REPORT IBD: The Pakistan Academy of Sciences (PAS) has recently proposed to the Indian National Science Academy (INSA) to collaborate in sharing the advanced knowledge and expertise of Indian scientists and their science lectures delivered at various institutions across India through video-link. The vice versa has also been propounded from the Pakistani scientific and academic institutions.

“The students will be given credit for attending these video-link lectures, as happens in the University of Karachi, where foreign university professors take video-conferencing classes,” PAS, headed by Dr. Atta-ur-Rahman, proposed to Indian relevant authorities.

According to it, scientific understanding in such fields as declining farm productivity, common diseases, use of information and communication technology and use of double-blind clinical trials to test different medicines applied traditionally can help promote a healthy scientific collaboration between both the states.

The INSA has subsequently decided to refer the proposal to its government and also with the Indian scientific community.

PAS has proposed the same to China and it has accepted the offer enthusiastically. Later this year, there will be an MoU to be signed to this effect.
