Iran Vying to Reach Peaks of Science Production

Tehran, Iran | Posted on February 26th, 2011

Addressing the 1st National Congress of Nano-medicine in Iran's Southwestern city of Ahvaz, Chancellor of Tehran University's Faculty of Pharmacology Rassoul Dinarvandi said Iran is determined to and will "rank first in terms of science production in the Muslim world in the near future".

Referring to Iran's speedy trend of scientific progress in recent years, Dinarvandi stated, "Given the current trend of progress, the country is moving to a higher rank each year, and at present Iran stands the second in science production among the 51 Muslim states."

"As acknowledged by international bodies and organizations, the rapid trend of growth in science production in Iran will narrow the gap between Iran and the leading countries," he stated.

Earlier in October, Iranian Vice-President for Science and Technology Nasrin Soltankhah said that Iran is the leading Muslim country in the field of nanotechnology, while standing among the 15 top nations in the world.

"We rank first in the production of nanotechnology and nanoscience in the region and the Muslim world and we have gained the 14th standing among the world countries," Soltankhah said at the time.

Soltankhah also announced that Iran is among the only three world countries which have compiled a National Nanotechnology Plan.
