Patents and Prototypes Support Programme

The Patents and Prototypes Support programme aims to facilitate the development, dissemination, protection, and transfer of technology, inventions, and creations developed by researchers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. 

Program Aim

The primary aim of the Patents and Prototypes Support (PPS) programme is to facilitate the development, dissemination, protection, and transfer of technology, inventions, and creations developed by researchers at R&D organisations, universities, startups and SMEs in KP. This will help in filling the gap between applied research and technology transfer to local industries by validating the technology. 

Rationale

The project will help scientists and researchers who have are very early stage and are unable to raise money for successful prototyping and commercialisation and are therefore trapped in the metaphorical ‘valley of death’. The project component aims to catapult and help some of those ideas succeed in rallying industrial grants and investment and ultimately commercialising their work. 

Benefits

The programme offers small grants of unto PKR 1.5million to researchers for patenting and/or developing and testing early-stage prototypes of ideas that have a demonstrated potential.
