Abstract

The study was conducted to find out why, in spite of all the talk, there are no visible benefits of linkages between universities and industry in Pakistan. We concluded that all the three parties, i.e. the industry, the academia, and the government somehow fail to play their roles: the government lacks a clear policy in this regard; the industry has little problems which can be solved by the academia, but there is a lack of interest on their part. In spite of all the problems, there is a little progress with the possibility of some policy pitfalls. We have identified four of such pitfalls, and have asserted that two of these are predominant in Pakistan
