Dehghani Firouzabadi on the sidelines of the environmental exhibition; Food and environmental security is among the priorities for the vice presidency of science
The vice president of science, technology and knowledge-based economy said: The synergy of the two institutions in the vice presidency of science, technology and knowledge-based economy and the environmental organization can be a big step in supporting environmental knowledge-based companies.
Ruhollah Dehghani Firouzabadi, Vice President of Science, Technology and Knowledge-Based Economy, referring to the program of the Vice Presidency of Science for the maximum use of the products in knowledge-based companies in the field of environment, said: "Definitely, in the new term of the Vice Presidency of Science, the field of food security and the environment is very important and will be one of our priorities.
He added: Also, considering the importance of the field, which the Supreme Leader also mentioned, students and graduates who have added value in this field and start a business will definitely be supported. If young innovators put their hands on the real need and create a collection or company for problems such as air pollution, soil salinization, and such valuable issues, they will definitely be supported. The most important part of supporting environmental knowledge-based products can be the synergy and cooperation of the Environment Fund with the Innovation and Prosperity Fund.
Also, in response to the question of one of the PhD students in the field of agricultural engineering who pointed to the unemployment of this group of graduates and the lack of recruitment of students in this academic field, the vice president of science, technology and knowledge-based economy said: "Unfortunately, attention and importance have not been given to the field of agriculture as this field remains only academic and research, it is not welcomed."
He continued: "Agriculture has continued in the same traditional way since ancient times, and knowledge has not been established, on the other hand, the educational method in this field in universities does not solve today's problems, that's why the chance to study in this field has decreased." And there is no motivation to hire academic staff in universities and to attract graduates, and there is no even to attract new students.
Dehghani Firouzabadi said: Young people should start creating businesses in this field because capital and scientific knowledge require business, so it is better for students in this field to take scientific courses in greenhouses and... so that get practical training and apply your knowledge.
In the end, he reminded: the cooperation between the Environmental Organization and the Vice Presidency of Science can be a big step to solve the problems of companies. Financial support is also an important part that will definitely be achieved with the help and synergy of these two institutions.
