AIOU holds poster exhibition to  develop chemistry-related products

Islamabad

Allama Iqbal Open University (AIOU) on Thursday held a day-long research-based posters’ exhibition to disseminate knowledge, relating to chemistry and its uses in the society’s overall development.  

The posters, developed by the final-year students of BS and MSc showed new developments in the field of chemistry. The students focused their study on medical chemistry, material chemistry, electro chemistry and natural products’ chemistry. 

They also highlighted various features of research methodology that helps to serve the society through chemistry. The exhibition reflected the talents of youth in developing the country’s natural and material resources, said Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Shahid Siddiqui on the occasion.

Pakistan is blessed with more than 50 per cent of youth of total population who could channelise their energy for the betterment of the society. The country needed trained researchers for promoting indigenous resources that could reduce the burden of importing chemical material and other industrial inputs. Such exhibition, he added helps to develop confidence among the youth.

The exhibition was the part of the University’s consistent efforts of creating and disseminating research-based knowledge that mainly benefits the industrial sector.  The AIOU has already set up a separate office of research, innovation and Commercialisation (ORIC) to maintain liaison with industrial sector to share latest research in relevant fields.

The office works as a bridge between researchers and the end-users for the application of latest knowledge (new innovation) in a particular field. The exhibition, arranged by the University’s Chemistry Department was largely visited by the students and the Faculty members. Dean Sciences Prof. Dr. Naghmana Rashid appreciated the efforts of the students and hoped that they would do the best in their practical field to serve the society. Exhibition’s coordinator Dr. Uzma Yunus also spoke about the importance of the exhibition on the occasion.
