Workshop on "Developing Industry Driven Technologies"

Pakistan Scientific and Technological Information Centre (PASTIC), Islamabad and Institute of Research Promotion (IRP), Lahore have planned to organize a series of workshops on "Developing Industry Driven Technologies" at universities across Pakistan to orient researchers about approaches and practices used in industry driven technologies as well as to train them how technologies are being planned, developed and commercialized.


Overview

The workshop is designed to orient researchers of the universities and R&D organizations about approaches and practices used in industry driven technologies. Participants will learn how number of technologies were planned, developed and commercialized. The will also learn about processes, fabrication and pilot tests trials of market driven products. The workshop includes significant learning for research managers in terms of technology development process, transfer framework and enabling factors for successful commercialization. Researchers will finally have number of projects with viable potentials as take away for their universities to develop and commercialize.


The workshop is based on case studies of products gone through identification, planning, lab works, pilot testing and production scale.


Objectives
  • To orient researchers on how projects are identified in industry
  • To make researchers understand about issues of process of technology
  • To train researchers on lab trails requirements of industry driven project
  • To share with researchers about pilot scale issues and challenges
  • To train research officers about commercialization process
  • To share publication opportunities from applied research

Participants
Researchers, R&D managers, ORIC heads, Managers of research agencies

Learning Areas
  • How industry driven projects are identified and what determines potential of industry investment?
  • How industry driven projects are planned to satisfy investors?
  • What is intended at lab scale and how lab trails produce industry required technology?
  • Technology challenges of production level
