Higher Education Commission, Pakistan (HEC) is mandated to facilitate, support and ensure quality higher education across the country. To enable the research and innovation ecosystem at universities, and to provide solutions & services to industry, government, and society, HEC through Higher Education Development Program (HEDP) has developed an academia-industry-government Portal (https://rfi.hec.gov.pk) as a part of the overall Research, Innovation, and Commercialization Automation which will also have ORIC, BIC, National Centers features and enhanced connectivity for academia- industry match making.
This portal will provide a unique platform to connect industrial, government and society professionals with the researchers, scientists, and academic fraternity of the universities across Pakistan to solve their problems. It will also provide an interactive environment for industries and government entities to offer projects, opportunities, and final year projects to students (graduates and postgraduate level). Furthermore, it will act as an active source to build liaison i.e., any registered member can initiate meeting requests and match the requirements to solve the problems of industry, society, academia, and government departments. The portal is currently live for users’ registration and feedback/ suggestions (if any).
The portal has dedicated section for multiple funding and training opportunities which can be harnessed on competitive basis once your profile is registered. Currently, Call for joint academia-industry Proposals for Technology Development Fund is live and this portal can help all players of triple-helix to find the relevant partners and report their industrial problems or opportunities.
