The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has entrusted universities to establish Office of Research, Innovation & Commercialization (ORIC) for promotion of knowledge-based economy. ORIC is serving as a focal point to facilitate and support all the research related activities; from development of research proposals to commercialization of research products linking them with industry by translating research outcomes. ORIC at NUMS also ensures that quality of research is reflecting the optimum standards and practices only matched by top universities.

ORIC aims to move across the frontiers of knowledge to create first of its kind interdisciplinary research and academia platform while NUMS continues to empower its capacity to achieve higher landmarks of success.

NUMS ORIC plans to organize capacity building workshops and seminars in order to refurbish the competencies of NUMS researchers and other stakeholders at par with international standards. These activities and initiatives will bring together various stakeholders to engage in conversations on major challenges and issues that will ultimately build an integrated scientific fraternity and provide a unified platform to address the future problems of the society.
