Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan has launched a research grant program for local universities and Degree Awarding Institutions (DAIs) under which local researchers are awarded with research grants. This step has been taken to keep Pakistani talent and brains within Pakistan.
“In the absence of facilities researchers, specifically the younger ones, are discouraged and are forced to seek better opportunities in developed countries. To avoid this brain drain, the HEC has initiated a research grant program ” — says HEC while introducing this program on its official site.
