Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) and the Venezuelan Science Ministry's Center for Science and Technology Researches signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on interacademic cooperation in the field of nanotechnology.

Iran, Venezuela Ink MoU on Nanotechnology Cooperation

Iran | Posted on November 7th, 2010

Based on the MoU, the aforementioned organizations will cooperate in exchanging students and conducting research projects in the field of nanotechnology.

A Venezuelan delegation, comprising Guillermo Barrerto, CEO of Science and Technology Center at Venezuelan Ministry of Science, and Roben Machado, head of Iowik Research Center (a Venezuelan Ministry of Science affiliate) and other ranking officials, visited the third Iran Nanotechnology Festival (October 25 to 29), where they were briefed about Iran's achievements in the field of nanotechnology.

"We traveled to Iran to visit this festival and sign MoUs of cooperation within the scope of nanotechnology study affairs because Venezuela is at the preliminary stages in nanotechnology and the researches of Iranian experts could be useful in helping Venezuela to develop nanotechnology", Barrerto said.

The head of the Venezuelan Science and Technology Center further praised the scientific level of the festival, and said that he has recently had a meeting with Iranian Ministry of Science's authorities to develop scientific and research cooperation between the two countries, specially on nanotechnology.

"Iran has been able to take great steps towards the development and sustainability. Holding such a festival at this level of capability implies this country's focus on its domestic knowledge and potential," he said.

He also expressed the hope that the Venezuelan Science Ministry would hold a similar festival in his country.
