Nanotechnology Official: Iran Proud of Human Resources' Efficient Efforts

Tehran, Iran | Posted on February 19th, 2013

Addressing the opening ceremony of the second round of nanotechnology training course to strengthen human resources, Dr. Rezayat pointed to the fact that there are about 5,000 nanotechnology university students at higher levels of education in Iran.

"At present, there are 4,412 university students at M.Sc. level and more than 1200 students at PhD level, who study nanotechnology all over the country. There are also approximately 1,000 PhD undergraduates in nanotechnology and more than 2500 nanotechnology experts who are members of the scientific boards of various universities in the country. The number of nanotechnology experts in Iran is very significant in comparison with other countries," he said.

According to the Head of Human Resources Development Workgroup of Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council, the number of nanotechnology-related patents and ISI papers presented by the Iranian researchers had been 25 and 3500, respectively in 2012.

"In creditable scientific publications, we possess the eighth rank at the moment. It is a good time to approach the next chains in the development of technology and production," he said, adding, "Although nanotechnology-related patents have a share of about 45% of all patents in the country, they can still grow and we need to increase this percentage."

As regards the need for the industrialization of nanotechnology in the country, Dr. Rezayat pointed to the activity of 355 companies that are directly active in the field of nanotechnology, and said, "At present, about 22 incubators are active in the field of nanotechnology, which constitutes about 16% of all incubators in the country. Moreover, there are about 133 nanotechnology-based products and equipment in the market, which have acquired the necessary certificates."
