PTA announces 5 Gold Medals for Outstanding Research Projects
1. Voice Over IP – a must to narrow the digital divide and the role of the PTA
2. Development of Public Safety Networks to deal with natural and manmade disasters
3. Devising models for Mobile Banking for Pakistan and the role of the telecom regulator
Here are the links which list the topics as well as the criteria.
While congratulating the PTA for coming up with this idea, I would like to suggest that they include people from the telecom and IT industry on the judging committee, and that they publish these research projects on their website for feedback from all stakeholders. Once they have the feedback, perhaps some of these projects can then be implemented. I would hate to see them end up as just academic papers.
