Dr. Aamir Mahmood has received an initiation grant of 150 000 SEK from STINT to collaborate with National University of Science and Technology (NUST) in Pakistan. The collaboration will lead to the implementation of case studies and organization of research visits.
The grant was received to initiate “Collaboration between Sweden and Pakistan to Investigate Reliable Information and Communication Technologies for Realizing Smart Electricity Systems”. The grant will be utilized to organize research visits of two researchers from each university, that is, Mid Sweden University, Sweden and National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan.
The possibility the grant provides is to combine the theoretical and practical research expertise of the two universities on reliable communication in wireless sensor networks, and make joint publications. In addition, the plan is to set up case studies on smart electricity grids both in Sweden and Pakistan: Sweden with its prominent R&D position in smart-grids and Pakistan facing long-standing energy crises provides a great opportunity for both parties to establish a long-term partnership.
