The main focus of universities during the last year was on the production of laboratory tools and effort to boost scientific and research production, Mehr News Agency reports.
During this time Iranian universities set as their major goal to support domestic product and avoid purchase of equipments from abroad.
Accordingly, the ministry of science assigned funds for the domestic production of lab tools and set new regulations to ensure that the products do not come from overseas.
Sadreddin Shariati, Dean of Allameh Tabatabaee University provided comments on the growth in the production of scientific papers in line with efforts to boost national product and said "Last year we continued our revisions of Humanities. Also to enhance scientific activities, scientific research centers will be improved.”
Another instance of the ministry’s support for national product in the last year was to assign the production of scientific equipment to doctorate students.
Mohammadali Zolfi, Dean of Buali University said "If necessary fund is given to the universities, we will arrange contracts to assign the production of scholarly equipments to doctorate students.”
