Scientific Facilities At CAS


USAID-funded US-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Agriculture and Food Security aspires to develop partnerships that are mutually beneficial, innovative, and collaborative and which are accessible to our diverse stakeholders. CAS-AFS seeks partners that contribute to and environment of co-learning and co-creation of knowledge that will enhance the teaching, learning and innovation process along with fulfilling societal needs and community problems.

Public Private Partnerships(PPP) is a unique opportunity to complement the comparative strengths of the government and private sector.PPPs can help overcome many of the impediments posed by market failure, institutional constraints, and systemic weaknesses in agricultural research and technology delivery by building on complementarities, exploiting synergies, and distributing costs and risk between the public and private sectors. Academia and industry strive for common goals to meet the societal need. If the two work separately, the achievements could be at odds, as university researchers prioritize education and basic research while corporate scientists pursue products and profits. Success depends on finding common goals and negotiating plans taht pay off innovative solutions to a much larger extent becuase they spot a market for it.
