Iran Plans to Set Up 10 Specific Nanotech Labs for Students

Tehran, Iran | Posted on July 23rd, 2012

Dr. Sarkar made the remarks, addressing the closing ceremony of the 3rd Nano Olympiad in Iran.

"We hope to provide each province with at least one equipped nanotechnology research laboratory to exclusively serve the students as a motivation and to foster a culture of innovation and creativity for the young talents," Dr. Sarkar said, informing that 10 provinces in Iran have made investments for establishing Nanotech Labs for Students.

The secretary-general of the INIC also described the competencies and capabilities of each nation with regard to technologies and particularly the emerging technologies as a measure of modernity and power.

"In the future, success on an international scale will be achieved only by those countries which maintain a high level of expertise in the emerging technologies. Nanotechnology as a notable example of the latter, will impact all aspects of modern lives because of its wide range of service and our high degree of involvement in it," Dr. Sarkar said, emphasizing the importance of the national nanotechnology promotion programs.

"Students are our country's most valuable future resource. We need to provide them with theoretical as well as practical knowledge in different areas of nanotechnology to secure our nation's future success. Hopefully, the INIC has so far devoted a good deal of attention to this issue and we are observing the progress, both quantitatively and qualitatively, and diversity in our educational programs for the students," he added, highlighting the education of students as a top priority for the INIC.

"The INIC has the holding of three consecutive national student Olympiads on nanotechnology to its credit and recently there have been suggestions by a number of Asian countries for extension of these scientific competitions to an international level. We approve this idea and try for its materialization," Dr. Sarkar said, expressing his satisfaction with the worldwide attention paid to the INIC's Nano Olympiads.
