Mission and Objectives
We recognize the importance of science as an essential ingredient required for the progress of Pakistan and its citizens, particularly students of science and the urgent need to create a vision of science rather than a mere recital of science in the present science education system.
Appreciating the need for simultaneous support from all quarters of the country and abroad for a better relocation of human and material resource, the KSS has been set up as a professional, non-profit, academic, non-political scientific organization of volunteers which will devote itself to the tasks of:
- Organizing, sponsoring, supporting and publicizing international, national and local conferences, symposia, seminars, workshops, field visits, tutorials, meetings and dialogue.
- Promoting exchange of scientific information, materials, ideas, values and methodology amongst institutions, organizations and individuals – be they involved in science or the general public.
- Representing Pakistani science in the international community and acting as a mirror and marker for the current status of science in Pakistan.
- Providing fresh, up to date and authentic help to students of science through literature help, counseling, and advice in their research work and through the organization of discussions and seminars.
- Promoting the use of common facilities that might be too costly to set up at individual level.
- Promulgating the message of science to the general public.
- Encouraging and disseminating knowledge throughout the country for the benefit and social welfare of the country and humanity at large.
- The KSS will endeavor to provide to students of science, crosscutting knowledge of the most recent developments in international science and technology.
