Researcher: Iran among 10 Pioneering Countries in Nanotechnology

Tehran, Iran | Posted on November 26th, 2012

"Iran is among the 10 superior world countries in nanotechnology science and has grasped the first rank in the Middle-East in the field," the Iranian nanotechnology scientist, Zeinab Fereshteh, told FNA.

She also said that Iran ranks 25 in the world in utilizing nanotechnology in different industries and in commercialization of products.

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 stand 10th in the world. Iran ranked 14th, in the same list, at the beginning of 2011.

Head of the Policy-Making Workgroup of the Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC) Dr. Ali Mohammad Soltani announced in August that over 3% of the world publications on nanotechnology belong to Iranian researchers and scientists.

"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," Soltani said.

"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.

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."
