The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan aims at strengthening academia and industry linkage and has initiated a program “Establishment of Technology Development Fund for Academia and Industry Joint Venture Projects to Introduce New Technologies in Pakistan”. The project has already completed two rounds of application and HEC has awarded TDF grants to 126 proposals out of 392 received. The 3rd call for proposals has already been advertised and the last date of proposals is August 30, 2018.
I am pleased to share with you that we are holding a one day seminar regarding Technology Development Fund (TDF) on July 03, 2018 at Abdul Wali Khan University Mardan. The officials from Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC) will enlighten the audience on how to pursue with Technology Development Fund (TDF). The seminar is intended to create awareness amongst the researchers and faculty of specially AWKUM and in general all the universities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) which, indeed, is a step forward to bridge the gap between academia and industry.
