International Thematic Research Groups of COMSATS
International Thematic Research Groups (ITRGs) of COMSATS
COMSATS created International Thematic Research Groups (ITRGs) with an objective to achieve South-South cooperation by undertaking well-defined joint research projects in various S&T fields with the participation of researchers and scientists belonging to different R&D institutions from COMSATS’ Member States and other developing countries. The focus of these ITRGs is on joint research projects, expert-exchange, short-term trainings and sharing of facilities/laboratory resources. The Groups’ membership is open to all willing relevant institutions from the developing countries. [ Click here for further details ]
