It is imperative for maintaining high standards in teaching and learning, that research and innovative initiatives be encouraged and adequately rewarded. IST has recently implemented R&D policy to inculcate research culture and to increase the research productivity of the Institute. This policy is fully supported by the management at the highest level. To coordinate the implementation of R&D Policy and to provide active guidance and support for research, innovation and commercialization activities, an Office of Research, Innovation and Commercialization (ORIC) has been established at IST in line with the guidelines of the Higher Education Commission (HEC). Since  its  inception  in  June 2011,  ORIC  is  very  actively working  to  promote  research  and commercialization activities and academia industry collaboration at IST.  Some major activities are:
