Director Message

The Office of Research, Innovation, and Commercialization (ORIC) was established on April 2, 2012, at the University of Sargodha, with the primary goal of bringing together intellectual talents from within the University. The core purpose of ORIC is to foster interdisciplinary research collaboration across various faculties and industries, in close partnership with the broader society. This collaborative effort is dedicated to addressing the challenges that the future of Earth and human society presents, thereby making a significant contribution to the sustainable development of the Sargodha region. Since its inception, ORIC has facilitated collaboration among researchers with diverse backgrounds, encouraging them to work across disciplines and provide valuable insights to society through policy recommendations. ORIC-UOS, as part of its approach to tackle complex global challenges, leverages cross-disciplinary knowledge drawn from fields such as agriculture, sciences, computing and IT, arts and humanities, social sciences, engineering and technology, pharmacy, and health sciences. In conjunction with our state-of-the-art UOS Business Incubation program, our primary focus is on supporting design thinking and nurturing start-ups and scale-ups with advanced technological and business methodologies, ensuring their long-term sustainability and growth.
Furthermore, our Innovation and Commercialization Division strives to establish a robust academic foundation that deals with policy, management, and the social design of science, technology, and innovation. Our aim is to implement appropriate technologies within society through commercialization.
The Research Support Division actively encourages collaboration with private companies and other universities, fostering communication among researchers to stimulate innovation and enhance the visibility and productivity of each research division.
In summary, ORIC initiatives serve as a central hub for the collaborative creation of a better future society. We believe in fostering cooperation between academia, government, business, and civil society. To achieve this objective, we extend a warm invitation to all, both within and outside the University of Sargodha, to join our forum and collaborate in our collective efforts. Your participation is not only valuable but essential, and we sincerely appreciate your continued cooperation.
