Dr. M. Zubair Iqbal — Pro-Rector R&SI Division
We welcome you to the emerging environment of research, innovation and entrepreneurship. This office of Research and Strategic Initiatives (R&SI) also looks after the strategic initiatives being taken in planning, academic development, HR and international relations.
Knowledge creation is key to the future development of any society in an ever changing world based on futuristic solutions of countries and communities. In order to develop NUML into a true center of excellence, it is imperative that apart from maintaining high standards in teaching, research should be rigorously pursued and suitably rewarded.
R&SI Division at NUML works for the promotion of research, commercialization, developing university-industry linkages, capacity building and policy development. It aims to protect and promote the interests of NUML and is working on long-term, sustainable planning and progress of all of its units in integration with the departments of the university. We have identified key industries with exceptional opportunities, long-term and cutting-edge challenges.
The Division also works on various aspects of environmental sustainability while working with all stakeholders and communities. It aims at equipping teachers, students and community members with the knowledge and skills needed to address pressing environmental challenges through adaptation and necessary actions. This is being carried out through curriculum development, capacity building, research and advocacy.
It also strives to develop sustained contacts with the corporate sector/market/industry to ensure compatibility between research and requirements to increase its utility to the optimum. Therefore, this office facilitates, promotes, monitors, and publishes research conducted with the view to maximize both production and utility of research studies attempted in this regard.
