He said that under the MoU, the authority would help COMSATS in identification of research areas. Similarly COMSATS would cooperate with the PTA on different issues related to trade, business and economy. It is expected that the MoU would also boost mutual cooperation in the relevant fields and would enhance the industry academia linkage.
The MoU would be valid for five years and would be renewed after completion of the period. It is expected that the concerned organisations would be benefited from this collaboration as the young researchers would be conducting research in the relevant fields of telecom with expert guidance of the faculty and the PTA, he said.
The main objectives of this collaboration are to support research activities and to equip the future leadership with theoretical training, as well as practical experience in policy and regulatory issues of the telecom sector, said Yaseen.
