The budget allocated to universities should be in accordance with their contribution to the promotion of entrepreneurship in various industries, Rouhani says

Scientific projects that can help resolve the most pressing problems in society such as air pollution and drought will be given priority, President Hassan Rouhani said on Saturday, calling for increased interaction with other countries in the field of science. 
"Today, there are numerous problems facing people in the country such as air pollution, and we are forced to close schools on certain days while the issue is solvable," Rouhani said at the closing ceremony of the 31st Khwarizmi International Award, named after Muhammad al-Khwarizmi, a prominent Persian scholar in mathematics, astronomy, and geography. 
The president encouraged researchers, academics, and students to join hands to find a solution to the issue, arguing that science should be at the service of society, his official website reported.
