Establishing at least six national technology creation centers by the end of the 7th plan
The Vice President of Science announced: Based on the strategies of the 6th development plan, the necessary grounds have been provided to establish at least six technology creation centers or national laboratories in the country by the end of the 7th development plan, one of which will be in the field of micro-technologies and microelectronics.
According to the communication and information center in the Vice Presidency of Science, Technology and Knowledge-Based Economy, Ruhollah Dehghani, who spoke at the press conference of the 14th Nanotechnology Exhibition at the Nano and Micro Technologies Development Headquarters before noon today, stating that the development of nanotechnology applications and market creation for the achievements This area is one of the main goals of the Nano and Micro Technology Development Headquarters in the new era, and said: The Nano Headquarters is one of the main trendsetters and influencers in the field of nanotechnology, and one of the most important achievements of this headquarters in the past years can be the promotion and expansion of the nano culture. among people and creating a good flow of science and technology production in this field of knowledge. Due to the efforts and culture-building of this headquarters, a significant part of the society, including the scientific and academic strata, have become interested in activities in this field, so that many academics, researchers and inventors have taken steps towards the production of science, technology and products in this field.
He continued: In the new period, this headquarters has been upgraded in its mission and with the addition of the micro field to the missions and activities of the headquarters, it is specialized in the field of microtechnology.
The vice president of science, technology and knowledge-based economy, stating that in the new period of its activities, the headquarters emphasizes the development of application and market creation for the scientific and technological achievements of the nano field, adding: the result of twenty years of experience and efforts of the nano headquarters is a significant and valuable amount of knowledge. It is the technologies that should be placed on the path of application and become the foundation for the creation and development of new technologies; Therefore, the development of application, creation and expansion of the market, and finally highlighting the role of nanotechnology in people's lives as much as possible, as well as the return of investment, are among the important and strategic goals of the Nano and Micro Technology Development Headquarters in the Vice Presidency of Science.
Dehghani reminded Iran's position among the top producers of nanoscience in the world and the necessity of using this reserve in the development of needs-oriented, practical and competitive products in the international arena and added: Iran, according to the pioneers of nanoscience and the owners of the most advanced technologies in this field, is among the top countries in the field of science and nanotechnology. One of the main pillars and axes of international interactions and the driving force of our country's science and technology diplomacy is the nano field, and the fact that scientists, experts and experts in this field recognize Iran as one of the pioneers and leaders in the field of nanotechnology, the necessity of moving in the path of development of domestic and international markets and the expansion of the fields doubles the application of this field.
He added: "In all interactions and meetings between Iranian delegations and other countries, nanotechnology is one of the main axes of scientific and technological interactions, and this issue makes the headquarters' responsibility to move in a new direction more serious."
Vice President of Science, Technology and Knowledge-Based Economy, referring to the prominent presence of powerful and outstanding nano companies in this year's exhibition, said: the achievements of this year's exhibition are quite distinct and impressive because the fourteenth edition of the exhibition was planned with the approach of applying nanotechnology, and therefore, this year we will have a stronger presence of capable companies in the field of application of science and nanotechnology.
Stating that the Nanotechnology Headquarters is known as one of the pillars of the country's scientific and technological power, Dehghani expressed hope that by planning to apply the scientific achievements of this field as much as possible, it will help the development of the market and the wider presence of Iran in the international arena of this field.
He also pointed to the management mechanism of the headquarters in the field of budgets and investment in nanotechnology projects and technologies and said: the budget of the nanotechnology headquarters, deputy resources and supporting headings foreseen in the law of leapfrogging knowledge-based production are used as levers and leads; According to the anticipated resources of the headquarters, the contribution of the Vice Presidency of Science and the headquarters is based on the tax credit note based on the production leap law, which is the same type of new support. The headquarters has the capacity to cover support up to one thousand billion tomans from direct sources, note 18 sources, tax credit sources and resources of the Vice Presidency of Science, but overall, the investment and support system of the headquarters and the deputy has a leverage and support role.
Referring to his upcoming trip to Geneva and his speech at the meeting of the United Nations Social Commission with the focus on "the role of science and technology in the development of public justice and the protection of human rights", the vice president of science, technology and knowledge-based economy stated: the focus of the meeting in this year, the United Nations Social Commission is the role of science and technology in promoting human rights, and the content that I will present in this event is based on the development of science and technology as one of the main discourses of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the role of science and technology in better interaction between countries. Development of justice is central and protection of human rights. Considering that science and technology are one of the effective tools that develop public justice, and to the extent that the role of knowledge and technology in people's lives develops, we will witness the expansion of justice.
He added: The field of science and technology is one of those subjects that are liked and accepted by all countries, and on this basis, it can be a very good axis and starting point for the expansion of international interactions and cooperation between countries. Accordingly, one of the main pillars of Iran's diplomacy in the international field is the field of science and technology and the capabilities of our country in this field.
It should be noted that the 14th Nano Technology Exhibition (Iran Nano 2023) will be held from 4th to 7th November at the permanent place of Tehran International Exhibitions.
