Great research opportunities for Pakistanis in Germany: Abidi

LAHORE

Syed Abidi, renowned educationists and career cousnellor, while answering a question on Geo News programme “Geo Pakistan” highlighted the importance of research and innovation for which opportunities are available for young Pakistani researchers. 

Talking in the programme, Syed Abidi identified some emerging countries that offer generous research and postdoctoral opportunities to international students such as Germany, Japan and Sweden. In this context, he also mentioned the recent research award/grant that has been awarded to a Pakistani scientist Dr Wasif Farooq in Berlin in the area of green technology and renewable energy. 

German Ambassador to Pakistan H E Ms Ina Lepel in the same programme, giving her point of view, encouraged Pakistani students and young researchers to apply for such scholarships. She was of the opinion that there was a huge pool, brain and talent in Pakistan and Wasif Farooq was just one among them. She added that the basic education structure in Pakistan needed improvement and steps were needed to be taken to reduce dropouts from schools at early stage that would give more chances to the young generation to reach university level and move towards pursuing higher education and research abroad, including Germany. 

It is pertinent to mention here that Germany has one of the largest landscapes of research, grants and opportunities which is not limited to nationality, origin or cast and is known to be one of the most transparent systems. A number of Pakistani students are currently pursuing their higher education and research in Germany on funding from different organisations.
