HEC to help QAU set up research centre for nanoscience

Abstract:
About 130 scholars participated in a two-day workshop on "Nanoscience and Catalysis" at Quaid-e-Azam University (QAU) on Monday.

The National Centre for Physics (NCP) and Chemical Society of Pakistan (CSP) jointly organised the event.

Higher Education Commission (HEC) Chairman Dr Attaur Rehman, who was the chief guest, said research on nanoscience was bound to bring about countless benefits.

He said the HEC would support the QAU in setting up a research centre for industrial nano-material, including nano-medicines, catalysts and environment cleaners. "Such an initiative will help the nation go ahead. We must take such decisions promptly," he said.

He said the HEC was working hard to ensure highly qualified faculty at universities and 2,500 students had so far been sent to technologically advanced countries for doctoral studies.
