Updates & Corrections

  • Correction 21 August 2018: A previous version of this story erroneously stated that the cost of the Pak-Austria Institute of Applied Sciences and Technology would be the equivalent of one-fifth of the total Higher Education Commission research and capital budget for 2018–19. In fact, the cost of the institute will be spread over eight years, so this comparison with an annual budget total is not accurate and has been removed.
