Higher Education Commission has started working to organize the research activities of universities by ensuring availability of well-established and fully functional ORIC (Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization) in public/private sector Universities of the country. The objective of the establishment of ORIC (Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization) is to develop, expand, enhance and manage the university's research programs and to link research activities directly to the educational, social and economic priorities of the university and its broader community. Therefore in line with the policy of HEC and in pursuance of Vice Chancellor's Directives for streamlining the management of Research Initiatives and Programs, there was a need to re-enforce the existing Research and Development. HEC aims to develop and sustain a dynamic and internationally competitive research sector in Pakistan that makes a major contribution to economic prosperity, national wellbeing and the expansion and dissemination of knowledge. Promotion of Research is one of the core strategic aims of HEC.
