Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES - STAFF REPORTER

DNA RAWALPINDI— Pir Mehr Ali Shah Arid Agri­cul­ture Univer­sity Rawalpindi ( PMAS- AAUR) Wed­nes­day or­ga­nized the In­no­va­tion Model Expo 2016 with an aim to high­light cre­ative busi­ness prod­ucts and ser­vices de­vel­oped by the stu­dents and to pro­vide them self- em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in order to cope with the chal­lenges of un­em­ploy­ment.

On the oc­ca­sion, PMAS- AAUR Vice Chan­cel­lor ( VC) Prof. Dr Rai Niaz Ah­mad was the chief guest while MPA Raja Muham­mad Hanif was the guest of honor.

The expo was at­tended by prom­i­nent aca­demics and re­searchers, fac­ulty mem­bers, stu­dents and a wide range of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from na­tional and multi­na­tional com­pa­nies, who lauded the ef­forts of the expo man­age­ment team in or­ga­niz­ing such a suc­cess­ful event.

Prof. Dr Rai Niaz Ah­mad ad­dress­ing the par­tic­i­pants said that Pak­istan is rich in all re­sources and peo­ple have a lot of po­ten­tial in all fields of life.

He pointed that there is dire need of link­ages be­tween academia and in­dus­try and stressed that univer­sity- in­dus­try joint projects must be pur­sued in the coun­try.

He fur­ther high­lighted that many other chal­lenges, tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vance­ments are the ma­jor one and de­vel­oped coun­tries are pro­gress­ing be­cause they are much more in­no­va­tive as com­pared to the de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.

The VC en­cour­aged the stu­dents and teach­ers to keep on mak­ing ef­forts for start­ing busi­nesses which would pro­vide em­ploy­ment to the poor peo­ple in Pak­istan.

He as­sured full sup­port from Univer­sity ad­min­is­tra­tion to fund such projects which would be help­ful to solve so­cial prob­lems.

Speak­ing on the oc­ca­sion, MPA Raja Muham­mad Hanif highly ap­pre­ci­ated the ef­forts of the stu­dents and teach­ers for or­ga­niz­ing this expo.

He said this expo can pro­vide en­trepreneur­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties to the stu­dents and they could be­come em­ployer in­stead of seek­ing em­ploy­ment. More than 70 projects and prod­ucts based on sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy were pre­sented by young sci­en­tists and fac­ulty mem­bers. The stu­dents dis­played their in­no­va­tive busi­ness prod­ucts and ser­vices in­clud­ing Blue­tooth hel­met, hatch­ing in­cu­ba­tor, funkada, mag­ni­fy­ing glass in­stead of iPad and tablets to en­large screen.
