have to create manpower who should have the real knowledge of developing their own products.

It will explore donors for research initiatives; establish linkages between universities and industrial and commercial activities. Office of research, innovation and Commercialization (ORIC), University of the Punjab is playing a vital role in Punjab University research activities and also encompasses the business incubation center of the university.

• Developing the university’s strategic research directions and policies.
• Increasing and diversifying external research funding.
• Improving integration of research and education at all levels of the university.
• Improving translation of research into the public benefit.

ORIC is working closely with the Ministry of Science and Technology (MoST), Islamabad since last two years, and an MOU has been signed. The credit goes to both the parties and especially our worthy Vice Chancellor to develop a liaison that will definitely give a boost to research and development activities at PU. There is an increasing need today than ever before to identify the technological needs of our country and to point out how the academia can apply their knowledge and expertise to propose workable strategies that our industry may embrace to do fuller justice to its vital role in the country’s development. At the moment, ORIC is acting as a bridge between the university’s researchers and funding organizations.
A database of all the equipments which are being used for carrying out analysis and certain tests have been made and placed on ORIC’s website not for only Panjab University but also other universities research students, public/community, other research organizations and industries to get benefit from these highly valuable equipments/expertise of the faculty members of PU. ORIC has planned to conduct a Vice Chancellor’s IDEA Competition for Business, for which there will a prize for the best innovative business idea for the faculty of Punjab University.
PU ORIC has been organizing a summit called “INNOVATION TO INVENTION SUMMIT” for the last five years in which not only faculty members of PU but also other universities of Pakistan and different industries displayed their products and processes of commercial importance, which they have developed indigenously. ORIC has placed a showcase in its building displaying few tangible products developed by our faculty members. Some of these products include Aleo Vera Gel, Aleo Vera Juice, Biodegradable plastics, Urea Formaldehyde, Flower Extracts, Perfumes, Honey, Liquid Dish Wash Detergent, Hand Washing Liquid and Sanitizer, Herbal Cold Creams, Diesel from Plastic Waste, Mosquito Repellent, Industrial Enzymes etc.
