Ignite, PITC is working on Engineering Innovation growth

For partnership and collaboration on entrepreneurs, researchers, industrialists, and engineering innovation academies, Ignite has entered into the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), with the Pakistan Innovation & Testing Centre (PITC). In presence was Mr. Shoaib Ahmad Siddiqui, Federal IT and Telecom Secretary, Mr. Asim Shahryar Husain, Chairman and CEO Ignite, Engr. Dr. Nasir Mehmood Khan, Registrar and Cabinet Secretary, Br. Tariq Javed, Innovation Advisor and Ignite senior officials.


Mr. Shoaib Ahmad Siddiqui, IT & Telecom Federal Secretary, on this occasion, was pleased to see the Pakistan Innovation & Testing Center (PITC) and Ignite unite innovation forces within their respective organizations, namely the PEC and IT & Telecom Ministry. It is undeniable that we desperately need to boost our economy by improving our technology entrepreneurs' business investment environment.

He added that it will be in the best interest of our innovators, researchers, industry, and academics to benefit from massive opportunities arising from numerous Ignite and PITC initiatives. NIC start-ups are also being given access to science labs that are designed to produce and validate products for engineering. In order to meet relevant organizations, the IT Ministry has always helped its departments bring value to our creativity and the start-up community.

Mr. Asim Shahryar Husain, CEO Ignite, claimed earlier in his welcoming address that Ignite is welcoming of PEC students of engineering approved institutions and suggested by PITC to apply through their creative ideas and products for our network of five incubators. He said that in our national institutes, we had missing engineering equipment and services. This relationship with PITC will also help us overcome this gap.


This will enable our companies, including agri-products, robotics, virtual reality, and others, to do research and tests for their final products, to provide regulatory assistance for their engineering products and services. Ignite is also offering engineering students and practitioners web-based training and opportunities to expand Pakistan'S freelancing exports by means of its DigiSkills training network.
