Iranians Contribute over 3% to World Publications on Nanotechnology

Tehran, Iran | Posted on July 19th, 2012

"More than 3% of the all published scientific journal articles associated with nanotechnology is due to Iran and that is while the country constitutes merely one percent of the world's population," Dr. Soltani said, addressing the closing ceremony of the second session of the national contest on nanotechnology.

"This formulated plan well indicates the long-term and panoramic perspective of the Iran's nanotechnology authorities and according to the Iran's Holistic Scientific Map on Sciences, the country is supposed to possess a two-percent world share in the production of nanotechnology-based products," Dr. Soltani said, referring to the ten-year strategic plan of the INIC for nanotechnology.

Dr. Soltani underlined the fact that Iran enjoys the residence of 4,000 nanotechnology specialists, and said "At the moment, we are training about 1,159 and 3,989 students at PhD and MSc levels, respectively, within different fields of nanotechnology in Iran."

"Today, 113 domestic nano-based products are available in the national market. In addition, a promising number of companies are actively involved in application of nanotechnology in their business such as nanomaterials (63), construction industry (25), oil and its related industries (14), health and medicine (28), auto industry (10), instruments manufacturing (25), water treatment and environmental issues (4), etc," he added.

The nanotechnology growth indicators for Iran have marked a high rise during the recent years as in the total number of the scientific publications, the country has just jumped up two ranks (at the beginning of 2012) to hold world's tenth place. Iran ranked 14th, in the same list, at the beginning of 2011.
