ORIC

Introduction

The Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) at The Women University Multan has been established in line with the aims of the Higher Education Commission (HEC) to develop and sustain a dynamic and internationally competitive research sector in Pakistan that makes a major contribution to economic prosperity, national wellbeing and the expansion and dissemination of knowledge.

Promotion of Research is one of the core strategic aims of HEC. Through the program and initiatives launched by HEC for strengthening research and the process of knowledge creation, the quality and research output emanating from the universities and institutes in the country have shown tremendous improvements and Pakistan has been acknowledged as rising star in a number of research disciplines in terms of percentage increase in internationally cited research publications.

Yet, our contribution is no more than a beginning and we need not only to sustain and improve this trend but also contemplate on questions of relevance and economic, social and academic impact of the research. In pursuit of this end, HEC has started working to organize the research activities of universities/HEIs ensuring availability of well-established and fully functional ORIC (Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization).

The ORICs will provide strategic and operational support to the University’s research activities/program, and will have a central role in facilitating the University’s research outcomes. ORIC at The Women University Multan is an outcome of these efforts

Objectives

Universities have played a key role in the process of economic growth, as both a source of new knowledge and a trainer of scientists and engineers who work in industrial laboratories. Around the world, countries have recognized that research universities are key to the knowledge economy of the 21st century and that they are crucial national assets. They promote the excellence in research and education by emphasizing the mutual dependence of these activities at the highest levels of learning.

ORIC was established at The Women University on ____________ to provide strategic and operational support to the University’s research activities/program, and to have a central role in facilitating the University’s research outcomes.

The objective of the establishment of the Offices of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) is to develop, expand, enhance and manage the university’s research programs and to link research activities directly to the educational, social and economic priorities of the university and its broader community.
