The Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) at the University of Karachi (UoK) was established and notified by Higher Education Commission (HEC) on July 18, 2013. This is a great step in integrating the overall university departments and institutes.

The ORIC office encourages the Research, Innovation and Commercialization culture through integration among University, Industry and Civil Society. Faculty can commercialize their research work to the industry for the benefit of the nation which will develop a trust worthy relationship for future mutual benefit.

Industry can utilize the huge resources like scientific instruments and the well trained faculty and researchers to solve their problems and new technologies can also be developed through the utilization of indigenous materials.

We at ORIC are inviting all corporate and social sector to join hands with us for a better integrated approach towards the development of the nation. Regional and international organizations are also welcome to make joint programs for the benefit of the community in general.

We are signing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with different organizations with the aim to bring about concrete research proposals for joint research projects and solving industrial problems through the experts available at the university who have decades of experience in their specialized training and research.

You can contact our office for further information and discussions which will facilitate the process for mutual cooperation and integration.

With best wishes,

Prof. Dr. Aliya Rehman
