Iran, Russia urge nanotech cooperation

Tehran, Iran | Posted on October 27th, 2011

During a meeting on Thursday, Secretary of Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) Saeed Sarkar and Director General of the Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (Rusnano) Anatoly Chubais expressed their countries' resolves to consolidate bilateral cooperation in the field of nanotechnology, IRNA reported.

The Iranian official also elaborated on the Islamic Republic's achievements in nano-sciences.

Sarkar explained about measures taken by Iran to further develop this area of technology in Iran.

The Russian official, for his part, said his country was ready to interact with Iran in the field of nanotechnology.

Chubais emphasized the necessity of implementing joint ventures and formulating important nanotechnology projects.

Iran began investing in the field of nanotechnology back in 2001 and quickly ranked first in the production of nano-materials in the region and the Muslim world in general.

As many as 65 Iranian universities and scientific centers as well as 130 Iranian companies have entered the field.

According to INIC, the Islamic Republic is among the very few countries that have compiled a National Nanotechnology Plan.
