DUHS - DICE HEALTH INNOVATION EXHIBITION

The Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) in collaboration with Distinguish Innovation Collaboration & Entrepreneurship (DICE) foundation (a USA based nonprofit organization) organizes DUHS-DICE Health innovation Exhibition every year to promote health innovation culture in Pakistan.

Basically, the idea behind the event is to motivate academia, industry, government, entrepreneurs and expatriates to come to a common platform to showcase health innovations and technologies, share knowledge and further collaborate with each other for the rapid development of health innovative products, necessary for the economic development of the country.

Alhamdulillah we have successfully organized 3 mega events in the year 2015, 2016 & 2017 and participation was incredible across different Industries and Universities / Institutes of Pakistan. We have a dedicated Business Incubation Center for this purpose, where we promote and assist such innovations/ideas from the students of various universities (Medical, Bio-Medical, IT, Engineering & Technology etc.)
