PK- Punjab | Aug 14 2012 | (01:20:55 - EDT)
Innovation is vital to a healthy national economy. Cross-functional and multidisciplinary teams help create some of our most popular products, from the iPod (software, hardware, user researchers) to new medical devices. In addition, innovation across multiple disciplines is essential for solving some of the country’s most pressing problems, from fixing a ruptured oil well on the ocean floor to providing clean energy sources. Science and engineering teams are, as a result, increasingly multi- and/or interdisciplinary. Funding agencies have recognized that solving complex problems often requires teams from multiple disciplines, and universities are continuing to develop cross-disciplinary programs. National Academy of Young Scientists (NAYS) and Pakistan Science Foundation (PSF) wants to appreciate all disciplines of Sciences. NAYS and PSF come this year with Best Young Scientist Award 2012 Interdisciplinary Sciences.
The researchers in the field of Interdisciplinary Research were judged on the basis of quality of research, particularly contributing towards the product, discovery and phenomenon, which interact at least two disciplines together (biophysics, computational sciences etc).

Science Innovation in Pakistan
It’s a chronological fact that ‘science and technology’ has revolutionized the mode of living of mankind since its emergence. It has taken humans from dark caves of ignorance and bewilderment to the resplendent and luminous horizons where skyscrapers are his astonishing creations and space race is his saga. Science has developed vigorously over a couple of last centuries. Every developed and future conscious country eyes for a better and improved science and technology infrastructure to meet the needs of time efficiently and progressively. ‘Science and technology’ is the fastest growing field that changes every instant (i.e. research done on one day becomes outdated the other day). Thus, to keep updated with latest discoveries, inventions and trends regarding research; many countries including India, China, and Malaysia are seriously working for the advancement of science and technology by setting up ‘science and technology organizations’. Infecting science and technology advancement through collaboration of brainy, inventive and perceptive scientists (researchers/professionals) and scholars is the hallmark of flourished countries.
In Pakistan, there exists a bunch of private as well as public sector organizations functioning for their respective cause, but unfortunately there are very few of them which are working in the above mentioned area, and a lot of work still has to be done in that particular field. Therefore, to fill that massive vacuum, a team of highly professional, educated and dedicated researchers, professionals, Post Doctorate Scientists, academicians and scholars from various reputed universities and industries all around Pakistan laid the foundation for a truly distinctive scientific organization with a pure academic motive namely NAYS (NATIONAL ACADEMY OF YOUNG SCIENTISTS). The science body is currently headed by Dr. Anwar Nasim, Advisor COMSTECH, who is the Patron of NAYS. Moreover the role of established overseas Pakistani scientists (professionals/ researchers) and scholars in NAYS is indispensable. They are not only part of NAYS but also amongst executives of it. NAYS is a combined platform for both local scientists (researchers/professionals) and overseas Pakistani scholars. Their collaboration and knowledge sharing can bring Pakistan parallel to international standards.
NAYS is the torchbearer in mobilizing young scientists (researchers/professionals) and scholars by providing them an environment where they can collaborate and exchange their fruitful innovative ideas and information in multidisciplinary science domains with an advisor council that includes crew of highly qualified professors for their guidance. It is helpful for young researchers for further research, to enrich their knowledge and to prove their flair in research-oriented subjects. Moreover, NAYS firmly believes that engaging young scientists and utilizing their capabilities by better orientation, improvisation and execution would definitely bring a remarkable boom of science and technology in Pakistan.
