The meeting was attended by more than 80 participants, including senior officials from the government of Pakistan, Higher Education Commission (HEC), United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and industry and academic partners.
Led by Arizona State University (ASU), the meeting provided a forum to share achievements on applied energy research conducted by the faculty at USPCAS-E. Under the Think Tank Dialogue, the session also provided a platform to discuss strategies for energy institutions both public and private, and universities to enhance cooperation and help address Pakistan’s energy needs.
