He also expounded on government efforts to allocate more funds for the next fiscal year of 1390 (2011) in promoting scientific and technological researches, namely in agriculture and research sectors with nearly $10 billion and $3.5 billion budgets respectively.
Iran in February unveiled two supercomputers in a special ceremony attended by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
President Ahmadinejad inaugurated the projects simultaneously in Amir Kabir University of Technology and Isfahan University of Technology through video-conferencing.
The supercomputer devised in Amir Kabir University has the capability of processing 32,000 billion data per second at the speed of 40 Giga bytes.
20 researchers and experts have worked on the project in 2009.
The supercomputer made by Isfahan University scientists is among the 500 best ones in the world.
