Iranian and Russian academic teams can assist each other in boosting research and technology through joint programs, said Nikolay Grachev, deputy head of the Russian Department for Science and Technology at the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia. “Our approach towards Iran is not merely investment-oriented because Iran has a large pool of scientific manpower, and mutual cooperation will bear fruit for both nations, he told reporters on the sidelines of the week-long Technology and Research Achievements Exhibition of the Islamic Azad University in Tehran. He also called for effective scientific cooperation between Iranian and Russian universities, IRNA reported. Noting that lack of sponsors for scientific research is a major hurdle for young scientists in both nations, he said mutual cooperation could help address the problem. The exhibition ended Friday.
