April 2, 2019

Islamabad: The National University of Sciences and Technology will launch its major policy research and advocacy centre on Wednesday (April 3).

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Hussain Qureshi will preside over the event as the chief guest. The launching ceremony will be attended by statesmen, senior civil and military functionaries, diplomats, corporate leaders, noted intellectuals, academia, experts, scholars, and researchers.

The organisers said the university was a key player in the process of nation-building through human resource development, advancement of science and technology, promotion of entrepreneurship and innovation, and national policy formulation, to facilitate the creation of knowledge economy.

They said the NUST was playing an important role in the country’s positive image building and perception management through active interaction within and outside Pakistan. The organisers said the NUST Institute of Policy Studies would help utilise the high policy formulation and advisory potential of the university in line with the best practices of the top university-affiliated think tanks in the world.

They said the associational network of NIPS was broad-based, representing domestic and global multi-disciplinary academic and multi-sectoral professional expertise. The think tank plans to provide original, scientific, well-articulated, and multidimensional policy research, analysis, and advocacy in key areas like Economy governance and socioeconomic development, IR-Geopolitics and security, CPEC – Belt and Road Initiative, Water-Energy & Environment, Policy formulation for Knowledge economy & Science Parks.

The organisers said the NIPS was striving to capture the general direction of multi-tiered change in the overall evolution of the state, market, and society. The NIPS advisory council consists of eminent multi-sectoral stakeholders to provide high-level advice and guidance to the functioning of NIPS.
