The 13th Nano Exhibition opened; Dehghani Firouzabadi: Nanotechnology production is one of the successful models in the country
The 13th Nanotechnology Exhibition "Made in Iran" started its work with the presence of the Acting Vice President of Science and Technology and the Minister of Agricultural Jihad.
Ruhollah Dehghani Firouzabadi, acting vice president of science and technology, Javad Sadatinejad, minister of agricultural jihad, and a number of ambassadors from other countries were present at the opening ceremony of the exhibition.
More than 160 companies producing Nano products and companies providing commercialization services are present and about 100 technological designs are presented in the exhibition. Industrial companies in various fields including oil and energy, health and health, water and environment, agriculture and packaging, automobile, paint and coating, construction, textiles and advanced materials are present in the exhibition. These collections have showcased their latest products and technological achievements.
Dehghani Firouzabadi said in this ceremony: We have successful models in the field of production and one of the country's prides. Acceptable production of nanotechnology products, products that have been developed with the help of various collections and knowledge-based companies. Iran has a successful biological experience in this field, this experience can lead to good things happening in the country in the year when special attention is paid to knowledge-based companies.
He added: "One of the big problems in the country is the issue of selling raw materials, which we must respond to with the help of knowledge-based companies and capable youth and prevent this problem" as raw materials are the national wealth of the country.
Dehghani Firouzabadi also stated: We are a rich country in the field of mining and oil, but what brings added value to the country is the field of technology and attention to it. We must believe that the economy based on mere trade is not a source of wealth. We are definitely following the support and development of knowledge-based companies in the form of serious programs in the vice presidency of science and technology so that national prosperity happens.
The Acting Vice President of Science and Technology continued: Accompanying government agencies with the ecosystem of technology and innovation is the most important auxiliary tool in this field. For example, when this ecosystem and the jump in knowledge-based production has become one of the serious concerns of the Supreme Leader, or the Minister of Agricultural Jihad pays attention to the knowledge-based field with all his strength and seriousness and raises issues and challenges that means special attention. It has reached a good stage for knowledge-based companies in the country, and the country is ready to provide its national market to knowledge-based companies.
He added: "Iranian people are very smart, we have a lot of liquidity in the country, with the help of which people can make big savings." If we can show that investing in technological fields has high benefits and cannot be compared with other fields, people's capital will automatically flow in this direction.
According to Dehghani Firouzabadi; helping the discussion of the stock exchange of knowledge-based companies, helping to develop research and risk funds and developing financing models of this kind are our most important priorities in the Vice Presidency of Science and Technology.
The Acting Vice President of Science and Technology also said: We have positive points and special privileges in the field of science and technology in the country. Our serious plan is to advance the drivers of the country's economy, which we have identified according to the country's territorial advantages and talents and capabilities, by implementing up to 65 large national programs, and with their help, target the networks of knowledge bases and Create based on the country's market priorities.
We increase the use of nanotechnology products in the agricultural industry
Seyyed Javad Sadatinejad, Minister of Jihad of Agriculture, also said in this ceremony: The exhibition is one of the best and most important exhibitions in the country and boasts the best national achievements of the country. In the Ministry of Agricultural Jihad, we pay special attention to nanotechnology and the use of this technology in agricultural development. Based on this, the Nano working group has been established in the Ministry and has targeted the use of Nano products in agriculture, and we are trying to use the research done in this field for the development of agriculture.
We must increase the commercialization of Iran-made products
Also at this ceremony, Mohsen Dehnavi, a member of the Islamic Council's Board of Directors, said: "One of the honors of all Iranians is holding this exhibition and offering knowledge-based and up-to-date products that are based on the needs and priorities of the market."
He added: During these years, we were successful in the field of science production, patents and knowledge; unfortunately, we are behind in commercialization. The law of leapfrogging knowledge-based production is also one of the tools that helps the development of commercialization in this field. The government is paying serious attention to the implementation of this law and its regulations have been approved. We are trying to speed up this work with the help of the government and the acting vice president for science and technology.
This exhibition provides a suitable opportunity for technological cooperation between startups and activists of the country's innovation ecosystem in the way of commercialization of products. All investors, accelerators, officials, industrial owners and activists interested in the country's innovation ecosystem are invited to visit this exhibition. In the Nano startup booth, 40 startups have displayed more than 100 of their technological products to the audience.
Recognizing research and industrial potentials, strengthening cooperation between industry and universities, penetration of developed Nano technologies in existing industries, laying the groundwork for the presence of Nano companies in international markets, promoting public knowledge in the field of Nano technology and honoring the best Nano technology products are the most important sectors in view. Taken for this exhibition.
One of the programs of the Nano Headquarters in the Vice Presidency of Science and Technology in Iran Nano Exhibition 2022 is to invite and receive foreign guests from all over the world in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The purpose of this delegation's presence in the exhibition is to negotiate business with the knowledge-based companies present at the Iran Nano exhibition. Guests from different countries such as Brunei, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Syria, India, Mexico, Turkey and Armenia will be present in various specialized fields at the Iran Nano 2022 exhibition, to have meetings with Iranian Nano companies for joint cooperation in addition to visiting the exhibition. .
