Technical R&D Projects

The Ignite (Formerly National ICT R&D Fund) Fund has been working jointly with the industry and the academia since its establishment. Apart from the projects being transferred from the PTCL R&D Fund, many projects are initiated by the Ignite (Formerly National ICT R&D Fund) itself. The Ignite (Formerly National ICT R&D Fund) has facilitated a large number of projects by providing funds for the successful execution of these projects.
