Iran calls for international scientific collaboration
The Iranian minister of science, research, and technology says the Islamic Republic invites scientists from all over the world to initiate a “collaborative program” with Iranian scientists.
“More than 35 years since its revolution, Iran is embarking on a new era of international interaction and cooperation. On the road to becoming a nation with scientific clout, Iran takes the role of science for peace, progress, and dialogue very seriously,” Mohammad Farhadi wrote in an editorial published in the Science Magazine on Friday.
“Today, Iran is in a position to fine-tune its development model and move toward qualitative improvement of its science and technology.”
Farhadi also said that scientific cooperation among countries is most effective through establishing direct contacts among scientists rather than through government-driven agreements, hence the Iranian government encourages and supports collaborations initiated by individual scientists from within the country or in any part of the world.
