National Idea Bank (NIB) is the initiative of Honorable President of Pakistan, Dr Arif Alvi, and was inaugurated by him in February 2021 at his presidency. NIB is a platform to recognize and support innovative ideas in Pakistan. The outstanding ideas are not only getting recognition but also chances for further implementation as industrial integration or investor’s attraction. Winners of NIB 2021 were given recognition and awards by the President of Pakistan, on 27th January 2022. A complete overview of NIB program can be found at
