Lahore Knowledge Park is an unprecedented initiative of Government of the Punjab which is aimed at brightening the future of our generations. What we are building is beyond infrastructure for educational institutes and R&D units. We are activating Triple-Helix Configuration, where government is promoting knowledge exchange between academia and industry for applied research. We have taken a more holistic approach, in line with the global standards of building a Technopolis. We are building industry-specific innovation hubs in order to engage academia in commercial research to increase economic activity. Through Lahore Knowledge Park, we aim to spur a national ecosystem of innovation and entrepreneurship. Lahore Knowledge Park is going to host campuses of top ranking international universities and R&D centers, enabling our youth to acquire world-class education.
Pakistan has favorable demographics as well as a thriving economy and an ever growing trend of entrepreneurship among its youth. We have robust potential to start moving towards a knowledge based economy, which is the call to progression in 21st century. And if we desire to excel in the comity of nations, we must nurture a knowledge economy. LKP is the embodiment of the vision of Chief Minister Punjab, Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif to transform Punjab and by extension Pakistan into South Asia’s nodal point for knowledge based economy. As a team at Lahore Knowledge Park Company (LKPC), we will leave no stone unturned to bring the vision of Chief Minister Punjab to effect.
