NUST Public Policy Research Centre (NPPRC)
To fill the apparent disconnect between academic research and its policy relevance, the need for institutional setup cannot be over-emphasized. After seeking approval from Rector, the NUST Public Policy Research Centre (NPPRC) has been established as an independent research and education-cum-training centre of the National University of Science and Technology with a mission to conduct high quality, theoretical and empirical research to shape public policy by integrating knowledge and methods across the social science disciplines. The Centre is housed at the NUST Business School (NBS). It serves as a bridge between the social science researchers of NUST and the public policy planners and implementers in public and private sectors. Besides research, the researchers at NPPRC also have strength in such areas as development of performance indicators for monitoring and evaluation, networking and leveraging, and preparing training modules and serving as master trainers on various aspects of public policy issues.
The important activities of NPPRC have a wide spectrum including the following
- Independent and Collaborative Research
- Education and Training
- Workshops/ Seminars/ Lectures
