Best Young Scientist Award 2012 by NAYS & PSF

Best Young Scientist Award-2012

Innovation is vital to a healthy national economy. Cross-functional and multidisciplinary teams help create some of our most popular products, from the iPod (software, hardware, user researchers) to new medical devices. In addition, innovation across multiple disciplines is essential for solving some of the country’s most pressing problems, from fixing a ruptured oil well on the ocean floor to providing clean energy sources. Science and engineering teams are,
as a result, increasingly multi- and/or interdisciplinary. Funding agencies have recognized that solving complex problems often requires teams from multiple disciplines, and universities are continuing to develop cross-disciplinary programs. National Academy of Young Scientists (NAYS) and Pakistan Science Foundation (PSF) wants to appreciate all disciplines of Sciences, that is why NAYS and PSF come this year with Best Young Scientist Award 2012 in
Interdisciplinary Sciences.
